Why mulch?

A 2 to 3 inch layer of your favorite mulch spread around your flower beds and borders twice a year:

  • protects plants from insects
  • prevents soil erosion
  • protects against fungus
  • protects against rot
  • helps retain water
  • prevents weeds from sprouting
  • protects against soil-borne diseases
  • Mulches also adds nutrients to the soil as it decomposes, improving the fertility and health of the soil. Mulches enhance the visual appeal of your garden or landscape and makes maintenance easier.
