Your Central Florida landscaping and garden is an investment worth protecting. Our environmental conditions and sandy soil can wreak havoc on any plant or tree. This is especially true in the cooler months when it is still hot in the afternoon, but cool and dry in the evening.
The best way to protect your landscaping and gardens is with quality organic mulch.
“If you have ever tried to walk on the beach on a summer afternoon, you understand how hot the sand can get. By placing mulch over the soil surface, shading it, the soil stays cooler. The roots of the plants can grow continuously because of the shading,” according to an article in Florida Today.
Mulching has numerous benefits such as, retaining oxygen in the soil, prevents erosion, aid in water conservation, as it decomposes it adds vital nutrients to the soil, protects the soil from extreme temperatures, reduces weeds, and creates a beneficial shelter for organisms such as ground dwelling spiders and earthworms.
“One of the most important reasons for using mulch is that organic materials used as a mulch can improve the soil by adding organic matter to our sandy soil. Organic matter is food for the soil microbes that supply nutrients to the plants, and it can improve the soil structure. Organic matter can increase the water-holding capacity of the soil, which is very helpful during a drought.”
Mulch is an inexpensive way to improve the health and look of your landscaping. Equally as important, is where you purchase the mulch. Quality mulch will be free of weed seeds and harmful chemicals.
