Most homeowners add mulch to their landscape in order to add aesthetic value or create a more manicured look across their outdoor space. However, mulch offers some valuable benefits that go beyond visual appeal. In fact, mulch can help keep your plants, flowers and trees alive through various weather elements.
If you’re on the fence about adding mulch to your property, consider these top ways that this ground cover can protect and improve the health of your landscape:
- Soil Insulation
- Temperatures aren’t always predictable in Georgia. A one or two-inch layer of mulch can act as an insulation blanket to help regulate the temperature of the soil and plant roots. Keep in mind that plants suffer when the air is too hot or too cold.
- Erosion Control
- It is not uncommon to have a hard rainfall or bad storm arise unexpectedly. Without proper mulch installation, this can be devastating to your flower beds and plants as rushing water washes away their needed soil base. Mulch is an easy and attractive way to help prevent soil erosion and protect your landscape investments.
- Water Absorption
- Summer days in Georgia can be harsh. Strong sun and high temperatures can quickly evaporate the moisture that the soil needs to supply your plant life. However, mulch can act as a barrier and prevent the sun from evaporating the water before it reaches the plants’ root systems. The ability to aid in water absorption is a highlighted benefit of mulch installation.
