4 Reasons To Mulch Your Garden

4 Reasons To Mulch Your Garden

The list of benefits of mulching your garden is an extensive one.  Here are 4 of the biggest reasons why you should mulch your beds.

  1.        Mulch insulates plant roots and steadies temperature changes.  A layer of mulch will act as insulation during fluctuating temperatures.  Bare soil will absorb heat more readily than mulch-covered soil.  Although warm soil aids in plant growth, maintaining an even temperature is more beneficial.  In times of cold weather, mulch will act as a protective barrier keeping the soil temperature from dropping too drastically.
  1.        Mulch affects moisture content of the soil.  Moisture evaporates more easily from bare soil than from mulch-covered soil.  
  1.        Mulch acts as erosion control. Bare soil washes away more easily if there is no barrier to keep it in place.   A layer of mulch will prevent soil displacement.
  1.        Mulch adds nutrients to your soil.   Mulch breaks down naturally adding nutrients to your soil for healthier plant life.  TIP:  Avoid using fresh wood chips as the early decomposition stages actually pull nutrients out of soil and are not as beneficial as a properly aged mulch.
