Using Mulch Around Ornamentals
Andrea Bull Community Manager abull@ evergreen-LM.com 877-221-6919
This month, NativeGreen Pest Control & Fertilization wanted to share some information and tips on using mulch. Applying mulch around ornamentals is a common practice in most urban landscapes. Mulch can improve plant growth, enhance landscape appearance, prevent plant damage, reduce maintenance time (weed control), and decrease water demands. Common mulch materials include bark, wood chips, peat moss, lava rocks, pine straw, limestone chips, and washed gravel.
appearance. Proper mulch emphasizes the ornamental plantings.
Types of Mulch
Plastic or Fiber Mats Used Under Mulch – These materials restrict the movement of water, air, gases, and nutrients in and out of the soil, which is detrimental to root growth.
Various types of mulch materials are available. Tree bark, wood chips, or peat moss mulches provide the greatest benefits to ornamentals. These materials also provide a pleasing color upon weathering. Avoid the use of polyethylene mulch (plastic), either alone or under other mulch materials.
Precautions When Mulching Too Deep of a Mulch Layer – Maintain mulch at a 1-3 inch thickness. A layer greater than 3 inches will increase water retention, decrease air and gas exchange, and cause shallow roots. Keep mulch away from the base of trees and shrubs because it provides an ideal place for insects, disease pathogens, and rodents.
Rocks & Gravel Mulch – Light colored mulches such as gravel and rock can reflect large amounts of light and heat. They are not recommended for sunny locations or where heat may be a problem.
Advantages of Mulch Weed & Grass Free Area – Mulch reduces competition between weeds or grass and the ornamental plants. A grass free area also protects plants from potential injury during mowing, weeding and trimming. This is especially beneficial to young transplants.
Introduced Weed Seeds – Some organic mulch (wheat, straw, corn cobs, etc) may introduce weed seeds and/or provide an ideal media for weed seed germination.
Conserves Water - Mulch reduces water loss from evaporation.
Increased Fertilizer Demand - Some organic mulch, such as sawdust, tie up nitrogen in the soil as they decompose. Additional fertility is needed for adequate plant growth.
Moderation of Soil Temperature – The soil under mulch is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This can improve root activity in the summer and help extend root growth through the fall and winter.
Mulch Can Be Dislodged into Turf – Certain types of mulch (large bark chips, rocks, etc.) can be dislodged from the mulch areas. This creates a maintenance problem and may damage mowing equipment.
Reduces Soil Erosion & Water Loss - Mulch helps prevent soil movement and water run-off. Improved Soil Structure - Organic mulch improves soil structure. Aeration and biological activity also increase. Enhances Landscape Appearance - Plants and planting beds with mulch have a cleaner

Alligators It is alligator moving and mating season for Florida’s estimated 1.3 million alligators, so you may see more alligators in the community at this time of year.
Leslie Boehlert Lifestyles Director lboehlert@ evergreen-LM.com 772-800-2505
Courtship typically is in April, followed by mating in May and June, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. To attract females, males display themselves by head-slapping the water and producing a deep rumbling below. Once a male-female pair is formed, they will swim together, touch each other’s snouts, and blow bubbles. Mating takes place in the water and when completed, the male will depart and the female is left to search for a place to build her nest. Female alligators construct nests by mounding up vegetation, sticks, leaves, and mud in a sheltered spot in or near water. Females use their whole bodies during nest construction—body and tail to clear an area, jaws to gather and drag vegetation, and hind legs to dig the hole in the mound for the eggs. After completing the nest, the female will deposit all of her eggs (ranging between 20 and 50) at once and cover them up
with more vegetation for incubation. She may move vegetation around to keep the eggs at a fairly constant temperature. Females stay near the nest during incubation and actively defend it from predators like raccoons. Females may also be aggressive toward humans, often hissing and charging at intruders, so alligator nests should never be approached.
During this time alligators will be on the move and may be more aggressive. Please give them a wide berth and respect their territory during this time of year.
Storm Preparedness Committee The all-volunteer StormPrep committee was formed to assist residents in preparing for storm season in Florida. It is still in the early stages, so more volunteers are needed in a variety of capacities. In the meantime, you can access most of the necessary emergency preparedness information under the Neighborhood tab on VitaliaAtTraditionHOA.com. For more information, contact John Hunter at 860-989-2285 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

All are invited to join us for lively games, even new players; no RSVP is needed. If you have a game set, please bring it. An easy game to learn, Rummikub is played with tiles, but is similar to the card game Rummy. It’s fun and different every time it’s played; combining luck and strategy, it changes quickly so every player has a chance to win until the very end. The object is to be the first to play every tile on your rack. It’s a great game to bring people together, with plenty of opportunities for talking, chatting, and competition if desired.
