4 Ways that Mulch Protects Your Property's Landscape Investment

Mulch is a fantastic and multi-purpose tool for your yard, garden, and landscape. First of all, it is inexpensive and eco-friendly, which makes it perfect for any greenspace, but there are many other compelling reasons to mulch.

Four ways that mulch helps to protect your property and landscape are:

Plant Nourishment

Mulching your gardens and beds has nutritional benefit for your plants, just make sure that you don’t layer your mulch thicker than three inches. Before adding new bark mulch to your plants, aerate and till the existing mulch to increase circulation. This also helps the plants absorb moisture, air, and essential nutrients through the soil and into their roots.

Maintains Moisture  

Another great advantage of mulching your gardens and plants is how it preserves the right amount of moisture in the soil, which helps with maintenance and watering. This is also a very environmentally-sound approach to landscaping, as you will use less water to maintain healthy, hardy plants. Also, who doesn’t like less labor when it comes to maintaining your home’s landscape, yard, and gardens? Keep greenspaces watered and thriving with mulch!

Prevents Pests and Weeds  

Did you know that mulching your beds and greenspaces helps to prevent pests and weeds? It is true: layering mulch with other components, like sand and weed fabric, will create a protective barrier that insulates and protects your plants from external influences. Weeds cannot grow if the sun cannot reach them and pests will move on to more appealing food sources. With a bit of initial work, you can keep your landscape virtually pest and weed-free, which will reduce the time that you spend gardening and increase the time you spend enjoying your outdoor space.

Improves Aesthetic Appeal  

The best way to protect the investment you have in your property is to maintain and improve curb appeal whenever possible. After all, this is the first impression that others- including potential buyers- have when viewing your home. Mulch provides a polished and finished touch that improves curb appeal and the overall look of your landscape. Why wouldn’t you want to put in the effort to enhance the aesthetics of your property?
