Our regular landscaping mulch is one of our more popular products because it is inexpensive, protects well against weeds, and leaves behind organic material as it decomposes. Mulch 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. Mulch maintains moisture within the soil which is very important here in Alabama during the hot summers.
Some mulching basics:
- In order to reap maximum benefits, a layer of mulch should be two to four inches thick.
- A coarse mulch will help to keep weeds from erupting in your garden.
- A fine mulch will decompose quickly, leading to more frequent mulching.
- Before mulching, remove all weeds and give the soil a good, thorough soaking.
