How Does Mulching Help Your Landscape?

Weed and Pest Control

Mulch does a great job at keeping away the things you don’t want. For example, mulching your gardens creates a weed barrier because not exposing the soil blocks weeds from finding a place to dig in.
The texture and smell of certain mulches can also dispel pests. Many animals, including bugs and rodents, don’t like the smell of cedar, for example. Soft-bodied pests like slugs, meanwhile, don’t want to crawl over anything with rough or sharp edges.

Keeps in the Good Stuff

Even as mulch keeps out what you don’t want, it keeps it what you do!
When you water your gardens, you fight slope and evaporation—mulch battles both by keeping your water from getting away. The water is then able to percolate down into the roots of your plants.
Mulch also helps to insulate. In the summer, it blocks the sun’s rays from burning the roots of your plants. In the winter, it prevents those same roots from freezing.

How Do I Pick the Right Mulch?

Organic Vs Inorganic

When we talk about organic vs. organic in the context of mulching, we’re talking about something different than the context of food. Here’s what we mean by whether the material used in your gardens is plant derived.
Many varieties of mulch are made from tree bark, nut shells, hay, or other plant materials. In addition, inorganic mulches are made from materials like stone, plastic pellets, polished glass, or rubber.
Organic varieties will eventually break down and feed your soil, while the others will last much longer but not act as a fertilizer.

Color and Texture

Mulch is also a decoration, so you’ll want to pick the right one for the aesthetic of your home and gardens. We often use color and material to create the perfect backdrop for the flowers they surround. Contrast is an essential element of landscape design.
And if pest control is part of your goal, you’ll want to pick a material with rougher edges.
