There are several great benefits of adding mulch to your landscaping; mulch prevents weed growth. Mulch is a great protector of plant roots in the winter and helps to prevent frost-heaving; in which plants are literally pushed out of the ground by the natural expansion and contraction of the soil as it cools off and heats up. Mulch will also keep the roots of plants cool during the heat of the summer. Mulch helps to keep the soil well aerated by reducing soil compaction that happens when raindrops hit the soil. Also reduces water runoff and soil erosion.
