“Mulch Day” signaled the beginning of spring at our house while I was growing up. My Dad would order a truckload of hardwood mulch and have it dumped at the end of the driveway. We’d each use our gathering tools—wheelbarrows, buckets, drop cloths, whatever we could find—to carry the mulch. Gradually the driveway pile would shrink as we spread dark, moist mulch over the front, back, and side yards. Ah, renewal.When we were done there was always a tremendous sense of accomplishment. The trees, shrubs, and flowers popped out from their beds, the lawn was well defined, and the entire yard looked tidier. Our house looked fantastic—and the newness lasted for a long time.Mulch can greatly enhance the attractiveness of your home, and it can also provide many other important benefits to your yard, including:

  • Preventing weeds from germinating and growing
  • Adding valuable nutrients to your plant beds
  • Reducing soil erosion
  • Acting as an insect repellent
  • Helping to retain soil moisture to keep plants healthy and reduce watering costs
  • Insulating soil from extreme temperatures:
  1. Where winters are cold, mulch prevents frost-heaving, where plants are pushed out of the ground from the expanding and contracting soil
  2. Where summers are hot, mulch keeps plant roots cooler
  3. During spring, mulch mitigates the temperature fluctuations that can stress blooms
