Why Mulch & Pine Straw are Important
Mulch and pine straw not only serve as an aesthetic purpose in your landscape, but when spread at the recommended depth of two inches, it provides an evaporation barrier keeping roots cool and moist in the Summer, and acts as an insulator, protecting roots from harsh Winter weather.
Aside from its decorative value, mulch offers many benefits to your soil and plants. Mulch reduces the amount of water lost through evaporation by shielding the soil from the sun’s drying rays. It keeps the soil cooler during the summer and acts as an insulator through the cold winter months. Organic matter is added to the soil as the mulch breaks down. Increasing the soil’s organic matter adds moisture and nutrients to the soil. Weed growth is suppressed by the use of mulch. Mulched plots are also less prone to erosion.
