Mulch is a wise investment
A layer of mulch placed over the soil has a variety of benefits. They help prevent weeds, holds in moisture, and insulates the soil from extreme heat, while it slowly breaks down, it adds vital nutrients into the soil.
Black mulch as the added benefits of allowing water to be defused evenly. This allows moisture to reach every part of the soil. The rich color adds an aesthetic beauty, just imagine beautiful greens and colored flowers pop against the dark background.
According to Living The Green, black mulch:
- Minimizes nutrient leaching by shedding excessive rainfall.
- Helps keep the edible portion of vegetable crops clean, especially pumpkin and other fruiting vegetables.
- Helps to prevent the transference of soil borne diseases from being splashed up onto the plant.
