The Benefits of using Mulch

 

  • Holds moisture in the soil which protects your plants from drying out

 

  • In cold areas - mulch protects roots from the cold and from getting pushed out of the ground by frost-heaving

 

  • In hot areas - mulch protects the roots by keeping them cooler

 

  • Mulch helps prevent weed germination as well as growth (Weeds are not only ugly, but they can steal resources from your garden)

 

  • Can add nutrition to your garden

 

  • Helps moderate soil-temperature (to avoid stressing your plants)

 

  • Adds a finished look and curb appeal to your landscaping projects
