The Benefits of Mulching
Mulch is generally used as a method of managing the condition of your soil. If your soil is sandy, dry, or prone to weeds, mulch can help! Consider these compelling benefits of mulch:
- Mulch reduces the growth of weeds by preventing the sunlight from reaching them. With the ground covered in a thick layer of mulch, weeds aren’t able to poke through to the sunlight as quickly.
- With the help of mulch, your plants can thrive. After mulch cuts down on the amount of weeds in your beds, your plants are able to take in all of the water and nutrients in the soil without competition.
- Mulch allows you to conserve water because it retains moisture and reduces evaporation. That means you can water less frequently in order to cut your costs. In addition, mulch softens the impact of rain on your bed.
- Mulch regulates the temperature of your soil so that the roots of your plants are protected from extreme heat or cold.
- If you choose high quality mulch, you’re choosing a long-term solution. As good mulch decomposes, it leaves behind rich, healthy soil.
