Mulching is one of the most effective ways to protect and maintain healthy landscaped plants, shrubs and flowers. There are many varieties of mulch: Rubber Mulch, Lava Rocks and Wood Mulch are some of the most common varieties. Mulch helps to hold the moisture in your plants and therefore saves you time and money by watering less. Mulch also helps with the prevention of weeds, thereby keeping your landscape looking much cleaner and finished. Another benefit to mulch is it keeps the mud from splashing up on your plants and your house when it rains. Many homeowners choose to have flower beds that are located adjacent to the home. If you don’t place mulch in the beds next to the house, you can end up with stains on your house that are hard to remove.
Mulching is a win-win situation. It helps with your plants and can drastically improve the aesthetics of your landscape. Whether you use colored wood mulch or beautiful colored lava rocks, it will really make your yard stand out from the rest. It is well known fact that beautifully landscaped yards add to the value of your home.
