THE BENEFITS OF MULCH
Mulch not only makes your flowerbeds & landscape beds look great, but it does so much more. It retains moisture, slows down weed growth, provides nutrients, controls erosion, reduces soil compaction, and insulates the soil, protecting plants from extreme temperature variations.
Organic mulch also improves the condition of the soil. As organic mulches slowly decompose, they provide organic matter which helps keep the soil loosen. This improves root growth, increases the infiltration of water, and also improves the water-holding capacity of the soil. Organic matter is a source of plant nutrients and provides an ideal environment for earthworms and other beneficial soil organisms.
FAQ: HOW MUCH MULCH DO I NEED?
|First, you will need to know the area (square footage) of the landscape bed that needs to be covered. To determine this, simply multiply the length by the width. If the area you want to cover is 40 ft long by 30 ft wide, your square footage is 1,200 sq ft. If you want to have a mulch depth of 2 inches, you would take 1,200 and multiply that by 324/2.|
