Benefits of Mulch Application

Mulch provides several advantages to our plants. It helps maintain cooler soil temperatures for plants during winter and shields them from damage caused by lawnmowers in the summer. Additionally, mulch retains moisture near the plants and minimizes competition from weeds. Mulch application offers a range of benefits, including:

Moisture retention: Mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil by reducing water evaporation from the surface. This can be particularly helpful in dry or arid climates.

Weed suppression: Mulch can also suppress weed growth by blocking sunlight from reaching weed seeds and preventing them from germinating.

Temperature regulation: Mulch can help regulate soil temperature by insulating the soil, keeping it cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather.

Soil improvement: Organic mulches can decompose over time and add nutrients to the soil, improving soil health and fertility.

Erosion control: Mulch can prevent soil erosion by reducing the impact of rainfall and preventing soil from washing away.

Pest control: Certain types of mulch, such as cedar, can act as a natural pest repellent and deter insects from entering your garden beds. Mulch application is an effective and natural way to improve soil health, reduce maintenance and improve the appearance of your garden beds.
