Why Mulch Should Be Included In Your New Year’s Resolutions 

#1 Reason to Mulch: Your Plant’s Health May Depend On It

Nutrients are necessary for plants to grow big and beautiful, mulch is an easy way to make sure they get enough. It also ensures these nutrient stay in the soil. Mulch acts an insulator, keeping the soil cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Mulch also keeps moisture in the soil, which means your flowering plants probably won’t die if you forgot to water them. You also won’t have to worry about those weeds invading your landscape, mulch discourages them from growing and taking up valuable nutrients 

#2 Reason to Mulch: Improve the Look of Your Landscape 

Mulch adds an aesthetic value that can’t be matched. Giving your home that professional landscape look. A lighter color mulch has a modern feel that contrast green, lush plants. While dark color mulch has a natural beauty that will complement any home. 

#3 Reason to Mulch: Good for the Environment 

When mulch breaks down it slowly releases valuable nutrients into the soil. Creating a healthier environment for your shrubs, flowering plants, garden, and even your trees.  Healthier plants are better able to withstand insects and extreme temperatures. Which means you will need to use less chemical fertilizer and bug repellent, which means a healthier environment all around. 

#4 Reason to Mulch: Less Weeding it a Time Saver

Mulch is a great barrier protecting your plants from invasive weeds. Smothering existing weeds and not allowing seeds to germinate. Mulch also protects your soil from erosion. With our intense thunderstorm, you don’t have to worry about the soil washing out.
