Benefits of Mulch 

Mulching your landscaping has many benefits that help conserve water. 

  • Mulch can reduce the amount of water that evaporates from your soil, greatly reducing the amount of water needed to water your plants.
  • Mulch improves the quality of your soil by breaking up clay and allowing better water and air movement through the soil.
  • Mulch provides nutrients to sandy soil and improves its ability to hold water.
  • Mulch acts as an insulating layer on top of soil, keeping it cooler in the summer.
