Why Mulch Matters Atlanta, GA

Why Mulch Matters


Mulch can be any organic or inorganic material that is placed on top of your soil. This ground cover can be used in your flower beds or garden as well as around your trees, shrubs and walkways. While most property owners consider mulch as an aesthetic necessity, it does far more than enhance your home’s curb appeal. Beyond creating a more manicured appearance, mulch also offers benefits towards your landscape health.

Here are some valued reasons why you should consider a fresh layer of mulch for your Georgia yard:

  1. Weed Control – Mulch can serve as a barrier to starve out weed growth.
  2. Retains Moisture – Mulch allows less evaporation in the soil by shading it from the sun.
  3. Prevents Soil Erosion – Mulch helps hold your soil in place after a hard rain.
  4. Enrich Soil Nutrition – Organic mulch will decompose and release nutrients into your soil.
  5. Pest Repellent – Cedar bark and other types of mulch have natural oils that are known to deter insects and pests.
