Helps prevent loss of water
Mulches prevent loss of moisture from the soil by evaporation during warmer, drier months. Moisture moves by capillary action to the surface and evaporates if mulch does not cover the soil. Sun and wind hasten this loss of moisture.
Reduces impact of weeds
Mulch is an excellent way of helping to reduce the effect of weeds on your plants and landscape. Mulch helps to prevent weeds from rooting themselves into your soil, and furthermore acts as a way of preventing sunlight from reaching and germinating any weeds that find themselves in your flowerbeds!
Helps maintain soil temperature
Mulch is an excellent way of regulating the temperature of your soil. Mulch helps to keep your soil cooler in the spring/summer and warmer in the winter as temperatures drop.
Helps to improve soil
