Why You Should Mulch Your Yard

Mulch can provide a uniform top layer around areas like trees or flower beds, increasing their visual appeal. The process can also be beneficial for the plants themselves, as well as your lawn.

Professional mulching with high-quality organic materials can help to:

  • Retain moisture: A thick layer of mulch helps slow water evaporation from the soil during the hottest parts of the day, keeping plants hydrated.
  • Moderate soil temperatures: Mulch provides an insulating layer that helps keep the soil cooler during the peak summer sun and warmer at night.
  • Control lawn thatch: Mulch provides the organic materials and nutrients that bacteria need to break down lawn thatch and keep your grass looking healthy and green.
  • Suppress weed growth: A thick layer of mulch can deprive weeds of the sun they need to thrive, slowing their growth.
  • Reduce fertilizer usage: Mulch provides many of the nutrients your plants need to remain healthy, reducing the need for costly fertilizers that can harm the environment.
  • Protect the environment: The mulching process minimizes the need for fertilizers and pesticides and reduces the amount of yard waste sent to the landfill.

Preparing for Your Mulching Service

To keep your lawn and garden as healthy as possible, you should mulch your yard at least once a year. Mulching in the spring can help prevent weed growth, but it’s best to wait until mid-spring so the ground has warmed enough to support spring planting and trees have dropped their spring litter like buds or seed pods.

Remulching in late summer or early fall can help replace any mulch lost to wind or erosion while protecting the plants and soil from dryer, cooler temperatures in the coming months.

It’s best to remove all visible weeds before mulching so they’ll be less likely to poke back through, as well as old mulch or moldy mulch. Mulching should be done on a dry day with no rain in the forecast. This gives the mulch time to settle in place, making it less likely to be carried away by high winds or heavy rain.

Make mulching as easy as possible by choosing a professional like Wheat’s Landscape to complete the process. We can help you select the best materials to support a healthy, great-looking yard.
