Retain Moisture

Keeping your lawn and plants watered is a must, especially here in Florida where temperature are often on the higher side. If you’re struggling to get enough moisture to your plants, consider mulch! One of the primary benefits of mulch is its ability to retain moisture for extended periods of time. Not only does mulch make it so that you don’t have to water your plants quite as often, but you’ll notice their health improves with this added moisture in a short amount of time. 

Root Protection

Mulch may not seem like the most protective material out there, but it’s one of the very best ways to protect your yard from the cooler months of the year. If you’ve struggled to keep your plants or trees alive, or you want to ensure that they’re able to endure the winter months, then adding some mulch around the roots will make a world of difference. The best part is that it offers that additional protection while also improving the appearance of your yard.

Improve Soil Health

The soil health of your yard contributes to how well your grass and plants grow, which is why it’s such an important factor of your lawn. To the surprise of many, mulch can make a significant difference in the health of your soil down the road. When you opt for an organic mulch in your yard, the nutrients will break down and make their way into your soil. Take this into consideration when looking for ways to boost your soil health as well as when you determine which type of mulch you’d like to be using on your lawn. 

Prevent Pests

Another surprising benefit of adding mulch to your yard is the fact that it can help to prevent the infestation of pests on your plants and trees. If this is a benefit that you’d like to take advantage of, you are definitely going to want to look into the different types of mulch because not every option will provide this benefit.
