What is Mulching and Why is It Important?
Mulching is an important process that involves applying a material on the surface of soil in your garden. Mulch thickness can range from two to four inches depending on the size and number of plants in the bed or garden. The mulch is placed over the soil layer around the plants.
Mulching is a process that has many benefits. It should be incorporated into your lawn care routine. Mulch minimizes soil compaction and prevents weed growth during rainy seasons.
Mulch assists with the conservation of water as it will retain the moisture from watering and sends more water to the roots of the plants. Mulch conserves water by retaining moisture and transferring more water to plant roots. Mulch also helps to maintain a uniform and attractive appearance for your flowerbeds and garden.
- Mulch is a great mulch for landscaping.
- It suppresses the growth of weeds.
- Retains soil moisture.
- Water evaporation is prevented (especially during the summer).
- Keeps soil temperatures cooler and more constant.
- It adds a decorative element to your garden and beds.

Types of Mulch We Offer
There are different types of mulch, but they can be divided into two main categories: inorganic or organic. Inorganic mulches are not as good for the soil, as organic mulches. They do not decompose and break down. Certain inorganic mulches, however, can heat the soil at night and radiate heat, which is beneficial to heat-loving vegetables and plants, like eggplant and cherry tomato.
These chips look fantastic in flowerbeds, gardens, pathways and shrub borders. They are not ideal for vegetable gardens and annual flowerbeds. They get in the way of digging the beds every year.
Stones are a great choice for rock gardens and cacti. They do raise soil temperatures, but they don’t help with soil health or plant development.
Grass Clippings: When grass clippings decompose, they release nitrogen and potassium. This provides more nutrients to the soil. Pests can live in them, which is one of their downsides.
Cocoa hulls contain potash, nitrogen and phosphate which are beneficial to soil. They can attract pests if they are too wet, and they may grow harmless mold in humid and hot climates.
Wood shavings can reduce your water and fertilizer usage and enhance the appearance of your lawn. Blocking airflow can cause root rot or fungus to grow.
Straw is an excellent choice for building healthy soil, and it helps regulate moisture and temperature. Some straws may contain seeds that can cause weeds to compete with water and nutrients.
Bark chips are a great option for landscapes that are drier and more stable. They absorb water well, are durable, and last longer. Bark can deplete soil nitrogen as it decomposes.
Pine straw is an option that requires little maintenance and is easy to use. It can also be used to control erosion. Pine straw can be expensive and must be replaced frequently. They can also attract pests such as mice and spiders.
