Benefits of Mulching

By June Zimmerman

TMMLC Nursery/Sales Associate

So why go to the extra work of mulching your flowerbeds or gardens? There are several very good reasons why using mulch is beneficial.

        *  Mulch keeps weeds down and also keeps them from germinating.

        *  It also helps keep moisture in the ground which is a big plus during hot summer months.

        *  Certain kinds of mulch add nutrients to your soil.

        *  Mulching in the fall keeps roots of more sensitive plants from freezing during the winter.

So what kind of mulch do you need? Regular undyed bark mulch is great for trees, shrubs, blueberry plants, etc. Dyed hardwood mulch works just as well, plus it keeps its color longer. Bark mulch will soon fade, but the benefit of it is, that it will deteriorate more quickly than the dyed hardwood and add more nutrients to your soil.

 For vegetable gardens and flowerbeds planted with annuals, mushroom compost is a wonderful choice.  Besides keeping down weeds and keeping in moisture, it also acts as a fertilizer to your plants. Mushroom compost is also a good choice to mulch your roses with in the fall to protect them during the winter.

Watch the video below to see the process our mulch goes through before it’s available to you.
