Mulch instantly gives your landscape a beautiful, finished appearance, but the advantages go far beyond simply elevating the look or value of your home or business, especially when you choose a natural-based mulch over one made of rubber or gravel.

How Mulching Helps

  •      Adds curb appeal. Mulch instantly adds rich color and a manicured look to your landscape beds, along the foundation of your home, around trees and shrubs, and between garden beds. Colored mulches do a wonderful job of complementing the hues of both your home and flower gardens.
  •      Improves the soil. Wood mulches and mulches made from other organic materials improve the soil as they break down. Microbes and insects in the soil naturally consume the mulch over time, adding the by-products back to the soil in the form of organic matter.
  •      Protects against temperature changes. Mulch acts as an insulator, helping to regulate soil temperature to keep plant roots cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Mulching is especially important for new plantings done in the fall that are still tender as temperatures begin to plummet.
  •      Conserves moisture. When you mulch, you can spend less time watering. Mulch helps slow moisture evaporation, so more water remains in the soil and available to thirsty plant roots.
  •      Helps prevents weeds. A 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch naturally helps prevents weed from sprouting and taking over the landscape by blocking their growth and access to sunlight.
