Your landscape beds play an important role in the overall curb appeal of your property in Oregon, so you'll want to do everything you can to help maximize their aesthetics. That's where mulch comes in. This type of ground covering is available in various types and color options, so you can pick an option that meets your personal preference or makes your plants stand out! In addition to enhancing the beauty of your landscape beds, mulch can also provide a variety of benefits to your plants and soil including suppressing weeds, helping your soil retain moisture, and helping to regulate the temperature of the soil. It's important that you refresh the mulch in your landscape beds on a yearly basis because mulch decomposes over time and will need to be replenished to ensure it's providing all of its intended benefits.
Mulch will improve the aesthetics of your landscape beds.
One of the best ways to improve the aesthetics of your landscape beds is to have mulch installed in them. Mulch can be beautiful on its own, and by adding it to your landscape beds, you will instantly increase their aesthetics. Mulch is also available in multiple types and colors, so you can pick an option that meets your personal preferences. What's more, you can utilize mulch to make your plants stand out. For instance, if you have a lot of bright flowers or plants in your landscape beds, you can have black mulch installed in them to make the color of your plants stand out!
Some popular mulch types that are available include cedar chips, fir nuggets, medium hemlock, and bark dust.
Mulch can provide various benefits to your plants and soil!
While mulch can add to the beauty of your landscape beds, that's not the only thing it can do. One of the biggest reasons to have mulch installed in your landscape beds is that it provides various benefits to your plants and soil, such as:
- Moisture Retention - Mulch can help your soil retain moisture by shielding the soil from the sun, which will reduce the amount of water that is evaporated from it. This will help keep your plants hydrated, especially during periods of drought!
- Weed Suppression - Mulch can help prevent weeds from growing in your landscape beds. Mulch can not only smother existing weeds, but it can also block new weed seeds from reaching the soil in the first place, so they won't have a chance to germinate.
- Soil Temperature Regulation - Mulch can protect your plants from drastic temperature changes. It can help keep the temperature of your soil regulated so it doesn't get too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer.
Make sure that you refresh the mulch in your landscape beds on a yearly basis.
While adding mulch to your landscape beds is a great idea, it's not a one-time thing. That's because mulch decomposes over time, so it will need to be replenished regularly to ensure that it is providing its intended benefits. By refreshing the mulch in your landscape beds on a yearly basis, you can keep it looking its best and providing its intended benefits.
As mulch decomposes, it will add beneficial nutrients to your soil!
