The trees and shrubs in your lawn help boost the beauty of your Texas lawn, that’s why protecting them is so important. One of the best ways to protect and enhance the trees and shrubs in your lawn is by adding mulch. Here are a few of the best benefits of adding mulch to your Texas landscaping this spring.
An obvious benefit of adding mulch to your landscaping is the quick boost in beauty it provides. There are so many different types of mulch and they all come in a variety of colors. Whether you decide on organic or inorganic mulch for your landscaping, you’re adding a perfect pop of color to accent your home and feature the best parts of your lawn and landscaping. Adding mulch to your property boosts the curb appeal of your lawn and home.
Another benefit of adding mulch around your trees and shrubs is the added protection against changing temperatures. The heat of our Texas summers is infamous. The intense heat throughout the summer stresses the roots of your trees and shrubs, causing damage and slowing growth. Adding a layer of mulch is a way to insulate the soil and roots, regulating the temperature and protecting against stress and damage.
During the summer, our trees and shrubs are put to the test. Intense heat and drought conditions sap the soil of moisture, causing intense stress for our landscaping. One of the benefits of adding mulch to your landscaping is water preservation. The insulating layer of mulch keeps the soil cool and shaded, preventing moisture from quickly evaporating. By adding mulch, you’ll reduce the amount of watering that you have to do throughout the year.
One of the best benefits of adding mulch to your landscaping is weed control. Weeds are nasty little plants that cause stress to our trees, shrubs, and other plants by stealing nutrients and space. Adding a layer of mulch to your garden beds and landscaping is a beautiful and effective weed control method. The layer of mulch smothers the existing weeds, cutting off their air supply and preventing sunlight from reaching them. The mulch also keeps weed seeds below from germinating, effectively eliminating the threat of weeds to your trees and shrubs. The extra boost of weed control returns the nutrients back to your trees and shrubs, allowing them to flourish throughout the year and resulting in a healthier landscape.
