Mulching Landscape Beds and Gardens

Mulching is one of the most common tasks of landscape maintenance.  It involves placing a material of your choice over the top layer of soil around the plants in a bed or garden. This material can be wood chips, rock, or various other materials.  Often mulch also contains organic material which adds nutrients to the soil.

The Benefits of Mulching

There are many benefits to mulching, which is why this process should be part of your regular lawn care plan.  Applying mulch can be beneficial for plants and soil and can also keep beds and gardens looking beautiful.  Mulch prevents weeds from growing and helps minimize soil compaction during the rainy season.   This keeps beds looking great and plants growing and healthy.  Plants can also benefit from the nutrients found in mulch.  In addition, mulch contributes to the ongoing health of soil. Nutrients present in organic mulch enrich the soil and replace nutrients that may be depleted over time.  Furthermore, mulch helps soils to maintain an even temperature and retain moisture. Finally, mulch can help keep an attractive and uniform appearance on your property.

Mulching Done Right

Because mulching can be so beneficial, it is important to make sure it is done right.  Unfortunately, when you apply mulch incorrectly, you may miss out on its benefits, or worse, you can even cause damage.  Johnson’s Lawn Service uses the best industry practices to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from mulch.
