Got Mulch? Its Fat Free and Packed with Nutrients – Landscape Mulch & Soil
Okay, raise your hand if you want healthier plants. That looks like just about everyone except for the wacky mad scientist in the back.
Now for the rest of you, landscape mulch and healthy soil are two essential elements for smiling landscape garden plants.
From an artsy view, mulched your beds with strong bed lines. They provide garden definition and form. Plant attributes are visually enhanced by mulch’s consistent neutral color. The subtle texture provided by landscape mulch unites your garden.
Ahhh ….. It’s the scientific action of landscape mulch & soil that builds your red soil. Billions of microbe critters working for you recycling nutrients through biological actions. Good stuff. Plants love it. Pump up your plants naturally with the good stuff.
McPlants knows landscape mulch and soils that work.
You can’t get enough mulch. Well, yes you can. A two to four inch mulch layer is perfect for holding moisture in the soil. Too much mulch can harm your plants.
Mulch also provides soil insulation protecting root systems with summer cooling and winter warmth. You will suppress weeds that steal water and nutrients with proper mulching.
Mulch is a key in preventing soil compaction that is detrimental to root systems. Importantly, mulched beds are excellent buffers for your tree trunks and plant stems against runaway lawn mowers and string trimmers.
Avoid the dreaded mulch volcano erupting in your landscape. Piling mulch around plant trunks and stems is an invitation for diseases, insects, and rodents to party down.
Low and wide mulched beds produce better healthier plants.
