Benefits of Three-Inch Cover Mulch

Deciding to use cover mulch in your landscape is a decision that both you and your garden will enjoy. Aside from providing visual clarity and finesse to your landscape, three-inch organic cover mulch:

Discourages weed growth. Before covering the landscape with mulch, it’s essential to weed the area before hand. Once the mulch is distributed, it’s easier to prevent and discourage weeds, which steal nutrients and space from other plants.

Retains moisture. The texture of compost and clippings will naturally retain moisture from rain and when you water it. This keeps the ground moist and prevents the soil from drying out too quickly.

Moderates temperatures. Three-inch cover mulch is a perfect insulator for the ground that houses the roots of your plants. By preventing temperature fluctuations, cover mulch keeps the garden in healthier condition.

Provides nutrition. Because mulch is composed of natural clippings, it provides nutrition to the garden as it naturally breaks down over time. Think of this as fertilizer the way that nature intended it.

Prevents erosion. Cover mulch prevents erosion of the valuable soil and nutrients from your garden. It also provides healthy irrigation as well as aeration for the benefit of your plants.

Unifies your landscape. Using the same texture and color of cover mulch throughout your landscape provides a cohesive look that will impress even the most ardent outdoor enthusiast.

When using cover mulch, we suggest distributing a three-inch layer over the ground. Three-inch cover mulch provides the bulk needed to maximize all of these benefits. Without enough depth, benefits such as moisture retention and temperature moderation might not be feasible. However, three-inch organic cover mulch delivers the capability of accomplishing these benefits.

  5. Claudia

    Hi, what do you mean by 3″ cover mulch? What would you suggest to replace my current turf in my front yard? I will have water-wise plants surrounded by mulch, and was told I need to spread it about 3″ deep. Thank you!

    • Whittier Fertilizer

      Claudia, 3” means the size of the mulch. We have a smaller size that is ground to 2”. Both products perform the same, just a different look. For a 3” layer, you need 1 cubic yard for every 100 square feet you are covering.
