Landscaping Experts Highlight 3 Key Benefits of Mulch Services, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Of the many things that can improve the appearance of your landscaping, few can have as much of an immediate impact as mulching. As the team at Sharp Lawn in Lexington, KY, explains, mulch offers several important benefits that will help your yard look its best.

The following are just a few of the great benefits provided when you lay mulch around your trees and other landscaping features:

  • landscapingWater Retention: Providing enough water for your plants can be a challenge, especially during spells of dry, sunny weather. Adding a layer of mulch to your landscaping helps prevent both evaporation and runoff, ensuring your plants have the water they need while also helping reduce your water usage. A healthy layer of mulch can also prevent soil erosion, ensuring that flowerbeds and other plants won’t get washed away during heavy rains.
  • Insulation: During extremely hot or cold weather, a layer of mulch can provide much-needed protection to your plant roots as well as the earthworms and other insects that are vital for creating healthy soil conditions. Stable soil temperatures could make all the difference in keeping your plants alive during a harsh cold snap.
  • Weed Reduction: In addition to improving soil fertility, mulch services help reduce weed growth by providing a natural ground cover for your landscaping. This extra cover greatly reduces the likelihood of having weeds pop up in your yard. Better yet, as mulch naturally breaks down over time, it adds extra nutrients to the soil, further improving soil conditions to promote healthy plant growth.
