When you are looking for mulch for your plants and property, one thing that you will find is that there are a lot of types of mulch to choose from. But all mulches are created equal, right? Not necessarily. There are some benefits that premium mulch gives you that cheaper mulch won’t. below are five benefits of premium mulch that you and your property can enjoy.
Adds Some Curb Appeal
Mulch will instantly add some a rich color and a nice, manicured look to the landscape. Put it around your home’s foundation, shrubs and trees and in between your garden beds to provide you with a beautiful look for your property.
Improves Your Soil
Wood mulch as well as mulch made from other types of organic material will improve your soil as they are breaking down. Insects and microbes in your soil will naturally consume your mulch as time goes by, adding their byproducts back to your soil as organic matter.
Guards Against Changes in Temperature
Mulch is an insulator, and it helps to regulate the temperature of the soil to keep your plants’ roots warm during the winter and cool during the summer. Mulching is particularly important for new plants that are done during the fall, since they’re still tender when temperatures are plummeting.
Putting down mulch means that you can use a lot less water. Mulch helps with slowing down the evaporation of water so that more water will remain in your soil to keep your plants’ roots hydrated. This helps greatly when there is a drought.
Helps to Prevent Weeds
A mulch layer of 2-3 inches will naturally help with preventing weeds from sprouting. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about them taking over your landscape since their growth is blocked and they don’t have access to the sunlight they need.
