Gardens & Mulching
Spring is a time of rebirth, and with the warmer weather, it’s the perfect time to work on your garden. One great way to improve your garden is by installing mulch. Mulch is a layer of material that is spread on the surface of the soil to protect plants and help retain moisture. Mulching also helps suppress weed growth and moderates soil temperature.

Some of the benefits of mulching include:
1) improved water retention – Mulch helps keep moisture in the soil, which is especially important during hot, dry weather spells.
2) reduced erosion – Mulch helps keep soil in place, preventing it from being washed away during heavy rains.
3) reduced weed growth – Weeds compete with plants for nutrients and water, so by mulching your garden you can reduce weed growth significantly.
4) moderated soil temperature – Mulch acts as an insulator, helping to keep soils cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
