This paper indicates the advantages of using mulching in conditions of real exploitation in difficult terrain within the city area in the Republic of Serbia. The work was written to include impacts on specific ecosystems within cities, which are generally very heavy: burdened by passing a large number of vehicles, pedestrians, a large number of different stepping, and the influence of salting in the winter provision of transport and the impact of drought in the summer. The authors point out that the mulching observation was done basically with the economic aspect. In addition, it can be noted that there are numerous benefits of mulching which are underutilized in the real exploitation so far. On the narrow spaces, which are generally long, a few hundred meters to several kilometers, that are actually dividing strip, green islands has been raised over the past decade. In these conditions the application of machinery is difficult, and the entire processing is handmade. One of the models of problem solving is the application of mulching that fully meets the ecological and economic principles of management of public lands. The implementation of such an approach would mean reducing allocations taxpayers, and the results do not harm the ecological principles, but on the contrary, it would have positive impact on the areas of green spaces within cities.
