Mulch Saves Water
When used as a ground cover, mulch retains moisture by reducing water evaporation from the ground, preventing rain runoff from quickly disipating, and maintaining lower soil temperatures during the summer months. These benefits help conserve water and have the potential to cut the cost of irrigation greatly.
Our organic mulches decompose naturally to deliver essential nutrients to the soil or planting beds below, yet cut weed growth by as much as 90%, reducing the need for herbicides and extra labor costs. The use of mulch also prevents soil erosion by cushioning the impact of heavy rainfall on steep slopes and increasing the water holding capacity of the soil while helping to abate excess mud in unwanted areas.
