What is mulch?
Mulch is a protective cover that is used in flowerbeds and gardens. There are many different types of mulch made from both natural and synthetic materials. The most common types of mulch are made of wood chips.
Why is mulch used in landscaping?
The attractive aesthetic created by contrasting plants against mulch is only one of many reasons why mulch is used in landscaping. Mulch also has many practical purposes in a flowerbed:
- Repelling insects
- Adding nutrients back into the soil as it breaks down
- Reducing the growth of weeds by blocking sunlight to them
- Moderating the temperature of the soil by protecting it from the harsh heat of the summer and the bitter cold of the winter so that plants can survive Connecticut’s temperature swings
- Cutting down on irrigation costs by preserving moisture
- Improving plant development by reflecting sunlight back to the plants
- Controlling erosion and sediment
When should mulch be applied?
The beginning of spring, also called the growing season, is when it is best to replenish the mulch in your flowerbeds. If you are planting new flowers, a fresh layer of mulch will help seedlings to grow faster by warming the soil. While mulch is usually spread by hand in a flower bed it can be laid down by a standalone plastic mulch layer or tractor-draw.
What type of mulch you choose to use is up to you. Mulch is available in natural earth tones and contrasting colors like red and black. While wood based mulches are the most common rubber bark is becoming more popular because it is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly option that is ideal for parks and commercial properties.
