Spring Mulch Time! What exactly is it & why use it?
"Mulch is any type of material that is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool and make the garden bed look more attractive. Organic mulches also help improve the soil’s fertility, as they decompose."
Besides the benefits of mulch for a landscape, adding this amazing material is really pleasing to the eye. Instead of spending lots of money replacing plants or redoing a landscape, why not consider cleaning up the one you have?
These pictures reflect an easy solution to improve a landscape. Simply remove dead or dying parts of the plant and existing groundcover, then apply mulch! It's like magic!
