Benefits of mulching include:
- Retaining moisture by reducing evaporation
- Interrupts the germination of weeds
- Reduces soil temperature in the summer and retains heat in the soil in the winter
- Improves the aeration, structure, and drainage of the soil
- Provides extra nutrients
- Prevents plant disease by forming a barrier around the plant
- Protects trees from damage caused by weed whackers or lawnmowers
- Minimizes the competition between plants for nutrients and water
Here are some tips to keep in mind while laying the mulch to maximize its potential benefits:
- Remove weeds from the area and water it thoroughly before laying the mulch
- Fresh composted, organic wood chips make the best mulch
- Do not lay mulch within several inches of the base of the trees or shrubs to keep the root crown exposed
- Areas with fine mulch should be about 2 inches deep while areas with coarse mulch can be about 4 inches deep
