Getting to the Point of Pine Needle and Mulch Installation

Apply­ing mulch and pine straw to your flower beds offer tan­gi­ble ben­e­fits to your plants and your land­scape as a whole. Mulch acts as a pro­tec­tive lay­er that shields the soil from harm while enhanc­ing its vital­i­ty. More specif­i­cal­ly, mulch keeps soil from erod­ing due to the forces of rain and wind.

The com­bi­na­tion of mulch and pine straw also insu­lates the soil from tem­per­a­ture fluc­tu­a­tions and frost, which in many regions are com­mon in the win­ter and ear­ly spring. This insu­lat­ing fac­tor also pre­vents exces­sive soil evap­o­ra­tion dur­ing hot, dry spells. By retain­ing its mois­ture, the soil can prop­er­ly pro­vide the plants with the water they need to thrive.

In short, pine nee­dle and mulch instal­la­tion help keep your soil and plant life intact, healthy, and vibrant. Cer­tain types of mulch can also aid in pest con­trol, though it’s worth not­ing that many types of mulch attract pests as well. This is why The Budd Group takes the time to under­stand each landscape’s unique ecosys­tem before decid­ing which type of mulch to install.

Replacing Pine Needles and Mulch as Needed

Over time, all types of ground cov­er break down, includ­ing mulch and pine straw. These cov­er­ings should be replaced at least once a year (cer­tain types of pine straw might require replen­ish­ment twice yearly) to main­tain a healthy, beau­ti­ful land­scape.

Our land­scap­ing pro­fes­sion­als won’t just install the ini­tial cov­er­ing of mulch and pine nee­dle — we’ll also estab­lish a main­te­nance sched­ule to inspect and replen­ish your ground cov­er­ings as needed.

Fre­quent­ly Asked Ques­tions about Pine Nee­dle and Mulch Instal­la­tion Services

Why Does Mulching Matter?

Mulch promotes healthy plant growth by shielding plants from extreme temperatures, retaining water, keeping away weeds, and more.

How Often Should Mulch and Pine Needles Be Replaced?

Mulch and pine needles should be replaced at least once a year to main­tain a healthy, beau­ti­ful land­scape. Note that cer­tain types of pine straw might require replen­ish­ment twice a year. The Budd Group will help you determine how frequently to replace mulch and pine needles based on your landscape's products and needs.

How Much Mulch Do I Need for My Landscape?

The right amount of mulch for a given bed depends on its size and current condition (for instance, heavily-weeded beds require more mulch). It's also important not to apply too much mulch, which can trap heat and suffocate your beds. Let the landscaping pros at The Budd Group help you determine the proper amount of mulch for your needs.

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
