How Nitro Mulch Can Help Your Plants Grow
Any coarse mulch like our nitro mulch has a number of extensive benefits when used as a ground cover. The mulch protects the soil and the plants growing in it from erosion due to rain and wind, and can also reduce soil compression that otherwise has the potential to crush roots. Plus, the mulch insulates the soil. This means that the temperature of the soil stays more consistent throughout the day, and that the moisture content of the soil remains fairly regular. The moisture factor also means that less water is wasted through evaporation, so you don’t have to spend as much time watering your garden beds!
But nitro mulch does more than your standard coarse wood mulch. Because we add additional natural ingredients that contain high levels of nitrogen into the mix, the gradual decomposition of the mulch brings a higher nitrogen content to your soil. This means that plants will have the nutrients that they need to thrive, and your soil won’t lose any nitrogen due to the decomposition of the wood.
Applying Nitro Mulch to Your Garden Beds
Nitro mulch can be used as a ground cover or as a soil amendment to increase nitrogen content before planting. In either case, count on needing a 3 to 5 inch layer of mulch atop your beds for maximum cover without suffocating your plants. Coarse mulch decomposes fairly slowly in comparison to fine mulch, so you will likely need to refresh the mulch only occasionally throughout the growing season as it works its way into the soil or erodes. Nitro mulch is a fantastic option for any type of garden bed, to ring trees and shrubs, or to prevent weed growth in a garden bed that is currently out of use.
