For most homeowners, mulch or rock is the last step in a well-designed landscape. The vibrancy in color and materials provide a pleasing and contrasting look to the plants. However, the benefits of laying ground coverings in your landscaping go far beyond beautification. Mulch and rock provide a plethora of health benefits to your landscaping:

  • Mulch prevents soil from erosion.
  • It provides insulation to the soil from extreme temperature changes.
  • Mulch retains moisture in the soil, which promotes healthy growth of the plants, flowers, and trees in your landscaping.
  • It assists in weed prevention by blocking direct sunlight and making it hard for weeds to reach the surface.
  • There is less need for water, herbicides, and fertilizer in your landscaping beds.
