Nothing neatens a yard more effectively than an attractive mulch spread on the bare soil under all trees and shrubs. In fact, using mulch is a good landscaping habit! Some of the benefits, however, make it worth the effort. A really good job of mulching your garden usually offers these benefits:

  • Inhibits weed germination and growth. (Weeds are not only unsightly, but they also steal resources from desirable garden plants!).
  • Holds in soil moisture, protecting your plants from drying out quickly.
  • Moderates soil-temperature fluctuations (This benefit is especially valuable during that turbulent-weather period in spring when you don’t want your plants to be stressed.)
  • In cold-winter areas, protects plant roots from winter cold and helps prevent frost-heaving, in which plants are literally pushed out of the ground by the natural expansion and contraction of the soil as it cools off and heats up.
  • In hot-summer areas, helps keep plant roots cooler
  • Depending on what you use, adds a bit of welcome nutrition to your garden as it breaks down.

The “right” or “best” mulch to use depends on your climate, the part of the country you’re in, and the part of the yard you’re using it in. Your yard is the first thing prospective buyers see when they approach your home. If you welcome them with a neat, attractive landscape you are likely to sell your home more quickly at the price you want. Experience has shown that this positive first impression, this “curb appeal”, will encourage potential buyers to appreciate the other features of your home.
