Mulch is one of the most important materials that is used in gardening and yard work. Mulch goes over the soil to improve the soil quality and promote plant growth. When you are laying mulch you must follow a couple of rules.
In this article, we are going to talk about what you need to know about mulch.
The first thing that is important to know is that you should be laying new mulch every year. Over time mulch wears down and it is not able to protect the soil as well as it should be. When this happens you need to purchase new mulch that will be put directly on top of where the old mulch was.
Another thing that is important to know is that there are a lot of different kinds of mulch. There are different colors and materials that you can use in your yard. Before you purchase any mulch do some research to see the different options that you have.
When you are laying mulch around a tree, make sure that it does not touch the base. If mulch touches the base of a tree, the tree may get infected by bugs. Instead, give the tree a couple of inches of space.
