Benefits of Mulch
From improving aesthetic appearance to deeply nourishing your garden, there’s so many benefits of mulch. Mulch is one of the most useful, valuable and healthful products you can add to your garden. Not only does mulch help your garden beds look beautiful by suppressing weed growth and covering exposed tree roots, it also nourishes your plants with extra nutrients and protects them from dryness and temperature fluctuation. With careful management and professional application of mulch, your garden can experience the full benefits of mulch for more beautiful and healthy plants and trees.
Creates An Attractive and Uniform Appearance
A quality, organic mulch applied on your garden beds can create a uniform effect across your garden and helps to create neat, attractive and natural garden bed structure. Wood chips and mulch can provide natural coloration and texture to garden beds, while releasing natural oils that smell great and keep pests at bay.
Suppress Weed Growth
Mulch stops weeds gaining a foothold in your garden, which means a more beautiful landscape and less work weeding for you. Fewer weeds means more nutrients and resources for your plants and trees to flourish.
Re-introduce Soil Nutrients
Over time, soil can become leached of nutrients and no longer provide the vital fuel plants and trees need to grow. Wood mulch helps to naturally replenish soil nutrients and also creates a space for natural organic matter falling from trees to collect and feed root systems.
Retains Soil Moisture
One of mulch’s most powerful and beneficial effects is its ability to retain moisture in soil. By preventing evaporative losses and maximizing water retention, mulch helps your garden stay healthy, vibrant and green no matter what the weather.
Temperature fluctuations, pests, weeds and dryness can threaten plants and trees, inhibiting their growth and even causing plant death. Mulch insulates and protects plants from temperature changes and dryness and inhibits pests, diseases and weeds for optimal plant health.
Suppresses Diseases and Pests
Many types of organic wood mulch contain natural wood oils and other characteristics that repel pests and keep trees and plants free of diseases.
Improves Tree Vigor and Growth
The combined effect of maintaining soil moisture, replenishing soil nutrients, protecting trees and roots and inhibiting pests, disease and weeds means that trees experience increased vigor and growth with the addition of mulch to the garden bed.
