5 Reasons to Add Mulch to Your Landscaping, Danley, Arkansas

Mulch is a common landscaping item, but not everyone understands the many benefits it offers to business and homeowners. With more than 25 years of experience, Buzz Landscaping in Conway, AR, often uses mulch to enhance their landscaping projects. If you want to improve your garden or flower beds, they encourage you to consider these advantages of mulch.

5 Ways Mulch Improves Your Landscaping

1. It Prevents Weeds

Weeds are unattractive intruders that germinate and grow in gardens and flowers, stealing nutrients from the seeds you planted. Mulch inhibits weed growth.

2. It Holds in Moisture

mulchSoil can dry out, and when it does, your flowers will do the same. Mulch holds moisture in the soil, preventing plants and flowers from drying out prematurely.

3. It Protects Plants From Hot & Cold Temperatures

Plant roots can experience frost-heaving, a natural expansion and contraction whenever soil cools off or heats up. The result is they push up and out of the soil when extreme temperatures occur. Mulch keeps plants cool in the summer and warm in the winter, preventing frost-heaving.

4. It Moderates Temperature Fluctuations

There are times of the year when temperatures fluctuate frequently, such as in the springtime, when storms are common. Soil experiences temperature fluctuations that can stress out your plants and flowers when this occurs, but mulch helps alleviate these issues.

5. It Controls Pests

Some insects detest the scent of certain types of mulch, such as cedar bark, making it a natural pest repellant. Choose a mulch that is very fragrant. Research your choice, and be aware some types can attract rather than deter pests. A landscaping specialist can help you differentiate between the two.

The specialists at Buzz Landscaping can help you choose and install the best mulch for your property. Visit their website or call (501) 730-4515 to schedule an appointment.
