Here are some quick facts about mulch:
  • Mulch maintains soil moisture, reducing the need to water established plants.
  • Mulch inhibits the growth of weeds, reducing the need for chemical herbicides or other weed control techniques.
  • Mulch buffers soil temperature by keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
  • Over time, organic mulch decomposes and improves your soil.
  • Mulch can be used in place of lawn in areas that are difficult to mow or where grass does not grow well.
