We are often asked about when mulch should be used or even why mulch should be used.
We’ll usually have a few questions in return to make sure you get the best mulch for the job, but here are some of the most common benefits:
- Conserve moisture
- Improve the fertility and health of the soil
- Reduces weed growth
- Enhance the visual appeal of your landscaping
- Helps protect plant roots from the winter cold and helps to prevent frost heaving
Mulch can also simplify your gardening chores!
Who doesn’t love hearing that? Wood mulches are what we commonly think of when it comes to mulch but stone and gravel can also be used. If you’re a devoted gardener or a casual one, with the use of mulch you’ll have less weeding, watering, fertilizing and maintenance.
Mulch is one of the best options because it slowly decays. Hardwood is the most common mulch option, and we have colored mulch options as well.
The amount of mulch needed can vary quite a bit, but it doesn’t take long for that amount to be substantial. And, when mulch is applied 3 to 4 inches thick it will stop weeds from sprouting up.
