Mulch is a very common ground covering to add to your landscape beds in Roswell, Georgia. Installing mulch will provide many benefits to your plants including soil temperature regulation, moisture retention, weed control, and soil erosion reduction. Mulch will also add to the beauty of your landscape beds by making your plants "pop" and you can choose from a variety of different color options so you can choose an option that meets your aesthetic preferences. Additionally, mulch will break down over time and will return nutrients back to your soil. Installing mulch will help your landscape beds become a focal point of your property and help your plants stay as healthy as possible.


1. Mulch provides benefits to the plants in your landscape beds.

Mulch added to landscape bed with plantings in Kennesaw, GA.

Mulch is a great ground cover to add to your landscape beds because of the health benefits it provides. Some of the health benefits include:

  • Soil temperature regulation - Mulch acts as an insulating layer for your plants. This helps your plants by keeping the soil warm in the winter and cool during the summer.
  • Moisture retention - Mulch will block the sun from evaporating all of the moisture from your soil, so your soil will be able to keep your plants hydrated for longer.
  • Weed control - Mulch prevents extended weed growth in your landscape beds by preventing new seeds from reaching the soil and blocks any existing weeds from receiving any sunlight to halt their growth.
  • Reducing soil erosion - A proper layer of mulch can provide protection for the soil in your landscape beds. Rain will hit the mulch instead of the soil, which will prevent the soil from being eroded by heavy rainfall.

Mulch added to landscape bed in Woodstock, GA.

Mulch is an organic material that breaks down over time. It returns nutrients to the soil as it degrades. This is a significant benefit because the more nutrients there are in your soil, the stronger and healthier your plants will be. You should replenish your mulch once a year to ensure that it continues to provide its intended benefits.

Installing mulch 2-3 inches thick will make sure your plants are not being suffocated and it is thick enough to provide its intended benefits.
