The material of choice is laid over the top layer of soil around the plants in a bed or garden. There are many benefits to mulching, which is why this process should be part of your lawn care plan. Mulch prevents weeds from growing and minimizes soil compaction during the rainy season.
It also promotes nutrition on the soil and helps monitor and maintain the even temperature of the soil. Mulch also helps conserve water as it retains moisture from watering and gets more to the roots of the plants. Finally, it can help keep an attractive and uniform appearance on your property.
