Mulching is a necessary step in maintaining a healthy landscape, especially during the early weeks of spring. However, there are many reasons why mulch is so essential to the health of your landscape at this time of year. As you are preparing your beautiful landscape for spring, consider these four benefits of mulching for your landscape this season.
Mulch Helps to Retain Moisture for the Roots of Flowers and Trees
Depending on which type of mulch you choose to use for your flower beds and bases of trees, it can play a crucial role in retaining moisture for your flowers, trees, and plants. Without mulch, your garden may otherwise lose moisture and nutrients that are essential for growth throughout the season.
Mulch Protects Roots from Chilly Temperatures and Pests
In addition to providing a protective layer for the roots of your trees, flowers, and plants, mulch also protects roots from chilly temperatures and pests. For many pests, the smell of certain mulches can repel them away from plants that they may otherwise snack on in your garden. Why not protect the beautiful features of your landscape?
Mulch Provides Your Plants with Nutrients
Along with retaining moisture for your plants and flowers, mulch also provides your plants with nutrients that might otherwise wash away in the rain. With a generous layer of mulch applied to your garden and surrounding landscape, you can rest assured that your plants will receive plenty of nutrients to grow and thrive throughout spring and summer months.
Mulch Keeps Weeds at Bay
While mulch can protect your plants, trees, and flowers from chilly temperatures and pests, it can also keep weeds at bay. Spending time pulling weeds out of your garden is never fun, and mulching is a great way to significantly reduce the amount of weeds in your garden this year.
