Is it better to put mulch or rocks around trees?

Rocks are better at preventing weeds than mulch, and they also require less maintenance. Stones can also contribute to the aesthetics of a property. However, rock cover is not good for gardens that get a lot of sun because they retain more heat than mulch. Ultimately, it all comes down to personal preference.

Using mulch in garden beds has many benefits, and decorative stone can sometimes be the best. To find out which one is best for your gardening needs and goals, we've rounded up the advantages and disadvantages of landscaping between decorative rocks versus mulch. Rock mulch works well around long-lived trees and shrubs, but in gardens that need fertilization, mulch is king. Both may indicate to pedestrians “areas where you can't walk,” but the stone works best to add interest, definition and transition to hard gardening elements, such as walkways and patios.

With Tree Lopping Service suggests using rock “around buildings, under roofs, around a fire pit, and around pools and equipment.” Both add aesthetic appeal that makes your property more attractive.

Mulch mimics nutrient-rich, moisture-absorbing vegetation cover from decaying leaves, twigs and branches, and is teeming with fungi, microbials and insects just as naturally occurs in the forest.
