Mulch

Mulching is one of the easiest and most beneficial practices you can use in the garden. We define mulch as a protective layer of material that is spread on top of the soil. It can either be organic -- such as grass clippings, pine straw, bark chips, and similar materials -- or inorganic -- such as stones, brick chips, and plastic. Organic mulches improve the condition of the soil. As these mulches slowly decompose, they provide organic matter which helps keep the soil loose. This improves root growth, increases the infiltration of water, and also improves the water-holding ability of the soil. Organic matter is also a source of plant nutrients and provides an ideal environment for beneficial soil organisms. Our horticulturists have identified some of the most important benefits for mulch.

BENEFITS:

  • controls weeds
  • prevents soil erosion
  • provides insulation in winter
  • conserves moisture
  • adds texture, color, & contrast to the landscape
  • provides a finished look to your garden and reduces maintenance costs

TIP:

We recommend keeping approximately a 3-inch layer of mulch on your flower beds year round.
