Mulching is an often overlooked component of lawn and garden care and maintenance. As a homeowner, you may be surprised to learn that mulching is not merely for visual purposes. It also offers many more benefits. 

In addition to that, not everyone has the time to keep his or her gardens and flower beds in perfect condition all year long. Just because you have a hectic schedule doesn't mean you can't enjoy the beauty of nature at your own home. 

What is a general definition of mulching?

Mulching is a property maintenance service Nikkel Lawn Care offers during all seasons. Mulch helps to feed your plants as well as protect. In warmer months, mulch holds moisture and slowly waters your plants. During winter months, mulch helps to protect plants against harsh weather conditions. As the year goes on, mulch breaks down to naturally feed your plants and shrubbery. Adding mulch to beds yearly helps reduce weeds and increases the curb appeal of your property. 

There are many different types of mulch, both organic and inorganic, such as:

  1. Chips
  2. Plastic
  3. Stones 
  4. Grass clippings
  5. Cocoa hulls
  6. Straw
  7. Bark chips

The material of your choice is laid over the top layer of soil around the plants in a bed or garden. There are many benefits to mulching, which is why this process should be part of your lawn care plan.  Mulch prevents weeds from growing and minimizes soil compaction during the rainy season.

Why do I need mulch? Is it only for decorative reasons?

Mulching promotes nutrition for the soil and helps monitor and maintain the even temperature of the soil. Mulch also helps conserve water so it retains moisture from watering and more water gets to the roots of the plants. Finally, yes, it can help keep an attractive and uniform appearance of your property. Although mulch, stone, and pine straw provide beautiful visuals as accents in your garden, they also have a tremendous practical value. Rock beds can be preferable in commercial areas that have greater physical demands. Natural mulch strengthens the plants in your garden. Plants grow better with natural mulch or pine straw because it provides a cooler surface. It also increases the microbial activity in the soil, retains moisture, and generally improves the quality of the soil.
