Create a clean divide between your plantings and the rest of your lawn
Using either organic or inorganic mulch in your plantings greatly improves the look of your home and plantings. Mulch creates a contrast making your plantings stand out and look better compared to bare dirt. Not only will your plantings look better but, a well-chosen mulch color will compliment and improve the look of the exterior of your home.
Surrounding your plantings in mulch helps improve their look and also has many benefits to your plant's health. Mulch helps control weeds, retains moisture and nutrients, prevents soil erosion, and helps moderate soil temperatures by creating a barrier from extreme heat and cold weather.
