What is Mulch?
Mulch is an extremely versatile product and it has functional as well as decorative uses in landscaping. The mulch forms a thick protective layer over the soil and you can choose from mulch of different colors and that adds color and texture to open areas in your landscape. Some mulch is made from fine gravel and today you can get synthetic mulches as well; we stock a variety of fine gravel and wood mulches that can benefit your plants and soil.
Benefits of Mulching
There are a number of advantages to mulching the outdoor areas on your property such as:
- Moisture: Mulch help retain moisture in the soil. Plantings require moist soil to grow in, but the water gets evaporated from it especially in warmer weather; this leaves the soil dry and packed. When you use good quality cedar mulch, it helps slow down the evaporation which means the soil retains its moisture content.
- Temperature: Gravel and wood mulch has an insulating effect and regardless of whether the surrounding temperature is cold or hot, a reasonable layer of mulch ensures the soil under it remains protected. In the warm summer months, mulch prevents the soil from getting heated excessively and in the winter time the soil doesn’t go too cold.
- Weeds: Mulch also plays a very important role in ensuring that garden weeds stay suppressed. When you have a healthy landscape, it deters the growth of weeds, but mulching aids the process, and doesn’t permit the sunlight to penetrate to the soil level, which prevents the weed seeds from germinating.
- Nutrients: If you opt for natural mulch, it eventually breaks down and becomes an excellent source of nutrition for the soil underneath and most landscaping professionals recommend the use of natural wood mulch in their projects. Not only does this become decomposed naturally and provide nutrients to the soil, but helps improve the soil’s structure as well.
