Mulch is a very important tool when it comes to gardening and landscaping. Many people will use a mulch to accomplish 2 important tasks, appearance and to prevent weeds. There is nothing worse than planting fresh roses and then the next thing that you know, you have not-so-lovely weeds growing. Yes, mulch takes care of both of those issues, but adding mulch to your flowerbeds or garden does so much more.
Mulch mimics an insulator, regulating the soil temperatures. This is especially important during times of extreme temperatures. For example, if it is hotter outside, mulch will at as a coolant to the soil, keeping the roots cooled and protected. On the other hand, in the extreme colder temps, the mulch acts as a warming blanket, protecting the roots for the next growing season.
Proper use of mulch will also protect the moisture in the soil. As seasons change, certain seasons produce a larger amount of precipitation. Mulch helps protect the moisture level in the soil during times of less precipitation and protects the soil from oversaturation during times of more precipitation. Mulch will also protect the soil from runoff in heavy rains. Oftentimes, when it rains heavily, you begin to see the beginning signs of soil erosion. As soil erodes, it can easily displace those seeds that you spent so long placing perfectly in a specific pattern. Utilizing mulch can help prevent soil erosion. While preventing soil erosion, mulch will protect your precious seeds and allow them an additional chance to grow to their full potential.
Did you know that certain types of mulch will prevent certain types of bugs from making your garden or flowerbed their home? Organic mulches will absolutely repel bugs better than inorganic mulches. Inorganic mulches, such as those made from plastic, rubber, or certain rocks are not only decorative, they tend to last longer than their plant-based counterparts.
Organic mulch is also nutritionally beneficial to your soil. As the mulch decomposes, it allows vital nutrients to seep back into the ground, providing more natural fertilizer for not only your current growing season but also for more seasons to come. As the mulch decomposes and you add more, you are adding more valuable nutrients to your soil. As seasons come and go, the added nutrients are going to give your plant life a much-needed nourishing boost.
