For most homeowners, the benefit of having mulch or rock around the plants, flowers, and shrubs in their landscaping is strictly for beautification purposes. However, ground coverings provide much more than an aesthetically pleasing finishing touch on your landscaping beds.

The Benefits of Laying Ground Coverings in Your Landscaping

Laying mulch on your landscaping is beneficial for the soil and growth of your plants. Mulch helps retain moisture, which helps your plants thrive. It also prevents soil from eroding and washing away. Furthermore, mulch prevents weed growth, while boosting plant growth from the nutrients provided by organic matter.

Noteworthy is the fact that mulch acts as a temperature control for the soil, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the fall and winter, which helps keep your plants' roots healthy and strong. Laying ground covering also provides a completed look to your overall landscaping design.
