I Love You So Mulch!
There are many advantages of adding mulch to a garden area, besides making the garden more attractive and finished looking. One of the best benefits of any mulch is its ability to retain moisture in the soil. Organic mulches break down over time and contribute to soil health. This can be very helpful, especially if your soil fertility is poor. Mulch reduces winter injury and helps with weed control. Other garden mulch benefits include protection from erosion and protection from mechanical injury from weed eaters and lawnmowers. Some mulch types, such as cypress, cedar or pinewood chips, do an excellent job of repelling ticks, gnats and fleas. Find out more about mulch, such as how and when to install it. Your landscape beds will love you and your neighbors will be jealous!.
