Benefits of Premium Quality Mulch
Mulch is beneficial to your landscaping. Mulch helps with water retention, weed control and beautification. Using mulch is a good gardening habit but not mandatory; the benefits, however, make it worth the effort. A really good job of mulching your garden usually offers these benefits:
Minimizes soil erosion and protects the soil from the drying effects of sun and wind and also keeps the soil cooler by stabilizes soil temperature, eliminating extremes of heat and cold so plants keep growing longer. Inhibits weed germination and growth. (Weeds are not only unsightly, but they also steal resources from desirable garden plants!)
Decreases the need for frequent irrigation or watering by reducing water evaporation and allowing moisture to stay in the soil longer. Holds in soil moisture, protecting your plants from drying out quickly Moderates soil-temperature fluctuations (This benefit is especially valuable during that turbulent-weather period in spring when you don't want your plants to be stressed.)
Kills existing low weeds by preventing light from reaching them and hinders weed seed germination by blocking sunlight from soil surface. In cold-winter areas, protects plant roots from winter cold and helps prevent frost-heaving, in which plants are literally pushed out of the ground by the natural expansion and contraction of the soil as it cools off and heats up. In hot-summer areas, helps keep plant roots cooler Depending on what you use, adds a bit of welcome nutrition to your garden as it breaks down
Enhances the appearance of garden beds and adds a touch of innovation, diversification, and beauty to any landscape design. Colored mulch helps define your existing landscape.
