What are the Benefits of Mulch?

  • Mulch helps retain moisture in the soil, aiding in plant growth
  • Mulch insulates the ground, keeping it cooler in the hot summer and warmer during the cold winter. This helps plants by shielding their roots from extreme temperatures.
  • Fresh mulch adds beauty and drama to any landscape.
  • Mulch is a natural material that will decompose over time, adding important nutrients to the soil and landscape.
