Benefits of Mulch

  • Mulching around tree trunks can help prevent injury to the tree by mowers and other trimmers.
  • Mulch serves as an insulation blanket to the ground, keeping soil cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
  • Applying a layer of mulch to plants can hinder certain diseases.
  • Mulching provides a uniform, well maintained look for plants.

Tip: All dyed mulch needs time to dry in the landscape setting prior to rainfall or irrigation. Drying time varies due to weather conditions. Minimum of 8-24 hours recommended.

Where to Mulch

  • Mulch should be applied to new plantings because it aids in moisture conservation of the new plant until the roots have grown into the surrounding soil.
  • The amount of growth and livelihood of the plants increase when there is no competition for water and nutrients from weeds.
  • Mulch should be applied to the entire beds of trees, shrubs, annual plants, herbaceous perennials and other ground covers.
  • Mulch may also be used to cover areas such as trails, playgrounds and natural areas.
