Winter is rapidly approaching and it is essential to prepare your landscape accordingly. Many people are unaware of the multiple benefits of mulch. At Neff Brothers Stone, we want to assist our customers any way possible, so we listed out a few advantages of mulch in the winter below.
Insulation- Did you know mulch can help insulate the ground and plants during the colder months? It also serves another purpose towards the end of winter. Typically we will have a couple of warm spells before it stays warm for spring. Sometimes plants will start growing early because of the false beginning of spring. The layer of mulch will keep the ground cold during the short sunny days.
Walkways- When the snow starts to melt, dirt walkways will become mushy and muddy. By applying mulch to pathways, you can avoid the muddy mess when everything begins to melt. If you receive a lot of rainfall every year, you could also line the walkways with mulch.
