Mulching is a very popular finish for any garden design project to cover areas of exposed soil. Organic mulch is not only pleasing to the eye; it offers substantial benefits to the health and longevity of your garden. Therefore, it is important to choose the right kind of mulch to maximize the benefits it can bring to your landscaping project.
Why Does Mulch Benefit My Garden?
Mulch is used over large areas, around trees, shrubs and bedding plants, and in pots and containers. No matter how much you enjoy gardening, there is no denying that weeding is both tedious and back-breaking. Although commercial weed killers are quick and effective, they may impact the growth of nearby plants and have a negative effect on the environment.
A layer of mulch denies germinating weeds the sunlight they need to grow. Instead, the nutrients are fed back into the soil as the mulch decomposes, nourishing your trees and shrubs. In addition, these nutrients attract helpful insects, such as worms, which will aerate and fertilize your soil.
Mulch acts as a protective layer between your plants and the harsh elements. In cold weather, it insulates delicate roots from frost. During the summer, mulch prevents water from evaporating quickly from the soil. Weeding is a time-consuming task that feels never-ending and laborious. A layer of mulch denies weeds the sunlight they need to germinate and grow, saving you time and keeping your garden looking exceptional.

Cypress mulch is very cost-effective and will last a few years if turned regularly.
