Landscape Mulch

Not many people know this but mulch as been around for quite some time. In fact, mulch has been around since trees have been around. The forest floors are full of mulch, which leads to a great environment for the all kinds of plants to grow and thrive. A layer of landscaping mulch on your backyard can ensure that the soil that is underneath it is protected. It is a simple, natural and ingenious shield against the weather and other such influences.

We at Macros Lawn Service have keenly studied the benefits of mulch. We have been using it in landscaping projects in Tigrett and the surrounding towns of Dyersburg, Humboldt, Brownsville, Jackson, Union City and Martin; and have learned just how much mulch your landscape would need to thrive and how much would have an adverse effect on it.

Mulch landscaping has become popular over the years and our customers in Covington, Blytheville Atoka and Kennett have requested for mulch protection on their landscapes as well. We know where to stop and ensure that there isn’t too much mulch in the soil. Our experience has taught us how to maintain and ideal level of mulch to protect the soil and encourage growth.

How Mulch Benefits your Landscape

Mulch essentially forms a protective layer over the soil. Depending on the product you choose, mulches can be natural or synthetic. There are several advantages of mulching your landscape.

  • Moisture: One of the best advantages of mulch is that it retains moisture. Plants need moist soil consistently but the moisture from the soil can evaporate over the course of the day, leaving the soil packed and dry. Wood mulch not only slows down the evaporation rate of the water in the soil, but also retains a healthy level of moisture itself. Water doesn’t evaporate from mulch as easily as it does from soil.

  • Temperature: Mulch has an insulating effect on the soil. Whether the temperature above the ground is hot or cold, a proper layer of mulch would ensure that the soil underneath remains protected. The temperature under the layer of the mulch changes more gradually and gently. In summer, it ensures that the soil doesn’t heat up too much and in winter it ensures that soil doesn’t cool down too much.

  • Weeds: Mulch plays an important role in ensuring that weeds remain suppressed. As it is, if your landscape is healthy, most weeds won’t encroach but mulch takes it a step further. It doesn’t allow sunlight to reach the seeds of weeds, ensuring that they don’t grow at all.

  • Nutrients: If you’re using natural mulch, it would eventually break down and become a great source of nutrition to the soil underneath. Most consider natural mulch the best mulch for landscaping. Natural decomposing mulch offers nutrients to the soil but it also improves the structure of the soil.
