Mulching is an effective way of keeping down the weeds in your garden or landscape. Most of us enjoy the beauty of an outdoor environment, but every weed shouts “ugly”. Birds, and any little breeze can deposit weed seeds into the soil, however, if you add a three inch mulch barrier around the plants and over the soil, it will save on maintenance by keeping the weeds from germinating, and will also create a pleasing appearance. As the mulch decomposes, it continuously enriches the soil.
This top-mulching is beneficial in another respect – SAVING WATER. You’ll still have to water, but less often, since the mulch holds in the moisture longer!
Another advantage of adding this three inch layer of mulch topper, is that it allows you easy access to a completely invisible drip system!
