Benefits of Installing Mulch in Your Landscaping Beds

Mulch offers both beneficial and aesthetically pleasing attributes to your landscaping beds. These ground coverings protect your plants, bushes, shrubs, and small trees. Did you know utilizing organic mulch contributes to the overall soil and plant health by providing extra nutrients? Additionally, mulch ground coverings help form a barrier that acts as a form of weed control because it blocks the weeds' access to light or other nutrients they need to grow, stopping them from choking out your landscape plants. Other benefits of mulch include:

  • Mulch helps to prevent soil from eroding. This is especially important if you have put down fertilizer or weed control treatments. You don't want the soil to wash away in rainwater or snowmelt. A 2-3" layer of mulch will be enough to protect the soil in this case.
  • Mulch keeps soil and plant roots insulated from extreme temperature changes. In our area of Iowa, we often experience a late frost as we transition from winter to spring, and that insulation will be very important at that time as it can help avoid severe damage to your plants that may have started to come out of winter dormancy.
  • Mulch retains moisture and prevents it from evaporating. In the summer, the hot sun will quickly evaporate any water. Mulch prevents that from happening because it blocks the sun from reaching the water in the soil, giving your plants time to absorb it.
