A fresh layer of mulch or pine straw creates a beautiful boundary against your lawn and home. Also, in the absence of naturally decaying plant material, these affordable resources provide valuable nutrients to trees and shrubs. As a result, mulching or placement of pine straw around the base of a tree or shrub is an excellent enhancement that improves the health of your plants when nature alone cannot do so.
Important benefits gained by use of mulch and pine straw include:
- Greater absorption of water, while reducing evaporation rates
- Insulation offers protection from temperature extremes
- Provides vital nutrients to plant material through gradual decomposition
- Helps minimize adverse effects caused by soil erosion during heavy rains
- Hinders aggravating weed growth
Another key advantage of mulch and pine straw is that they can be applied anytime of the year, regardless of season and ongoing weather fluctuations.
