Mulching is one of the best things a homeowner can do for the yard. It helps to prevent erosion and crusting, conserves soil nutrients and moisture, preserves soil temperature, and deter weeds. Mulch can be added to vegetable gardens, flowerbeds, and anywhere else on your property. When applied appropriately, mulching will save you maintenance time and save on resources like watering, weeding and fighting pests by almost 50%! Now that is worth the mulching investment!
CHOOSING THE RIGHT MULCH FOR YOUR YARD
Choosing the right mulch depends on your primary reason to add it and how long you want the mulch to last. Inorganic mulches are considered to be permanent. You can certainly remove this type of mulch if you want the landscaping and lawn care design to change at some point. This type of mulch protects the soil, however, it is not always the best option for your yard. Black plastic mulches warm the soil and radiate heat at night,which is good for heat produced vegetables, but harmful to other plants.
Organic mulches include materials like leaves, straw, compost, wood chips, shredded bark, sawdust, rocks, and grass. Organic mulches will decompose after time and it adds more nutrients to the soil when it does.
