If you’ve ever tried to pick out the right type of mulch for your garden beds, we bet it was a pretty daunting task. At any home supply store there are dozens of choices. Do you pick cedar mulch? Pine needles? What type? What color?

Before you load up on heavy mulch that has to be replaced year after year, take a second and consider replacing all that mulch with gorgeous, lightweight shell aggregate! As the leading shell aggregates supplier in South Florida, we’ve seen more and more folks turning to sea shells as the ideal material for garden beds.

The Benefits of Landscaping with shell aggregates

Shell aggregates can do great stuff for your garden. Over time, if the shells break down, they turn right back into sand, which blends in perfect with what is already there.

Shell aggregates also offer the benefit of insulation throughout hot summer months. A good thick layer of crushed shell aggregate will keep soil temperatures down, which will keep your plants from wilting.

The shell aggregates also do a great job of keeping weeds at bay. Weeds have a hard time breaking through a layer of shells; but if a weed does make it through, it’ll be a lot easier to pull because it won’t have much to hold on to.
