Mulch is a material placed over the soils surface to uphold moisture and improve the condition of soil around the ground, plants, and trees. Mulching is one of the most beneficial things a home owner can do for the health of their yard. Mulch can reduce water loss from the soil, minimize weed competition, and improve the structure of the soil. If appropriately applied, mulch can give landscapes a scenic and very aesthetically pleasing, well-groomed appearance.
Mulch must be applied properly; if it is too deep or if the inappropriate material is used, it can actually cause significant harm to trees and other plants. Make sure the mound of mulch surrounding the tree is neither too plentiful nor to scarce. Mulch controls weeds, keeps soil moist, and prevents erosion and runoff. Mulches enrich the soil when they decompose, adding nutrients and improving the soil structure. A blanket of mulch maintains even soil temperatures, which promotes healthy plant growth. During the winter and other cold times, mulch keeps the soil from the freezing and thawing; actions that hurt root systems. Mulch makes a garden look fresh, giving beds a consistent and finished look.
Dyed / Colorized mulch has become more and more popular with homeowners and landscapers over the past few years. This mulch sustains its color for a longer period of time in comparison to regular double shredded hardwood mulch. Dying the mulch brown, black, or red highlights the ground and makes the mulch stand out. Its popularity has grown with landscapers because the mulch only has to be recovered once or twice a year. Gardeners enjoy mixing and matching the colors of the mulch and ground with the colors of flowers, plants, and trees to create beautiful landscapes.
