WHY ADD MULCH?
Adding mulch to your landscape is a great proactive way to prevent weeds in your landscape bed. Unfortunately, we often hear horror stories of Lincoln homeowners going out of their way to apply mulch to their lawn and landscape.
Two things end up happening:
- The job turns into a headache, mulch isn’t properly applied, and by the end it doesn’t look how they thought it would.
- The homeowner ends up making multiple trips to the store to buy additional tools like wheelbarrows, shovels, extra bedding, and by the time they add everything up they spent more money than they wanted to.
THE POWER OF MULCH:
Although landscape beds are always susceptible to weeds and a Landscape Bed Weed Control Program should be considered, mulch is essential to preventing a severe weed problem in your landscape beds. Bare, exposed soil is a goldmine for the seeds of weeds to take hold and begin growing. Using mulch to cover the soil can be very effective. Mulch can also be very powerful when it comes to protecting your soil. Mulch insulates your soil and acts as a shield from extreme weather conditions. Mulch also helps your soil retain water which keeps roots moist. And since mulch comes in a variety of colors, shapes, and textures, you can add a lot of character to your landscape.
