  • Mulch has many benefits

    It helps to control weeds, prevent extreme soil temperature fluctuation, decrease water evaporation, and improve drainage.  Mulch also reduces mower and string trimmer damage on shrubs and trees by suppressing vegetation near their trunks.  As it decomposes, mulch produces organic materials to improve soil and otherwise benefit plants.

    Mulching is one of the best things we can do for our plants, but if done incorrectly, it can be one of the worst things we can do to them.
