Mulch is a great way to improve an outdoor living space. There are numerous benefits associated with the use of mulch. Firstly, mulch will help to slow the process of evaporation of water from the soil, which is great for plants as well as for conserving water. Mulch helps aerate soil and facilitates water moving through the soil, which breaks up clay. Nutrients are also released from mulch, which improves soil quality further.
In warmer climates, there is also an insulating benefit as mulch keeps the underlying soil cooler, which is beneficial to plant roots. Finally, mulch can save you from the back-breaking labor of weed removal as it inhibits the growth of weeds and unwanted plants. The stubborn weeds that make their way through will be easier to pull from the mulch.
