Title: Shhh: An Easy Secret To A Lush Beautiful Garden – Mulch

  • Shhh An Easy Secret To A Lush Beautiful Garden
    Mulch

2
  • This secret garden ingredient will transform
    your lawn and garden from burnt to bountiful
  • A dry autumn with burnt leaves, as
    Mississauga experienced last year, results in
    drought like conditions for your garden, lawn and
    trees, come the following spring. So whats a
    gardener to do? Mulch.

3
  • What Is Mulch?
  • At a most basic definition, mulch is a
    material that you spread over your lawn and
    garden to protect it from the elements.

4
  • Mulch comes in a variety of formats. Some
    people use their fallen leaves in the autumn, but
    if you want to mulch year round, in garden beds
    for example, you can get bark mulch, as well as
    mulch made from recycled wood, in different
    colours (red, brown and black) to suit your
    landscaping design.

5
  • In the case of the brown mulch, it is made up
    of natural pine and cedar so it not only has a
    beautiful colour, but also a heady aroma that
    gardeners favour!

6
  • What Is Mulch Used For?
  • Mulch has a variety of important uses. It
    works to keep moisture and nutrients in the soil
    while at the same time minimizing soil erosion
    and preventing weeds from growing. It also breaks
    down over time, enriching the soil.

7
  • Think of it like the layer of leaves that
    protect a forest floor in the wild, except your
    garden has a little help from you (and your local
    garden centre)!

8
  • The weed prevention aspect is an important one
    for gardeners as a little mulch can go a long way
    to saving your back from endless weed pulling.
    Theres a reason you see it in garden beds on
    city / municipal property. Its good for the
    garden but it also saves a lot of money in toil,
    weeding and maintaining the beds.

9
  • In the fall, a solid layer of mulch is a
    blanket between your garden and the cold and
    snow. Roots of plants, trees and shrubbery are
    better protected against the elements, by
    maintaining a more consistent, moderate
    temperature below ground. Come spring, it will
    also prevent soil erosion from heavy rain showers
    and run offs.

    temperature below ground. Come spring, it will

11
  • If youre looking to grow plants like
    tomatoes, compost is indispensable, but so is
    mulch. Tomatoes are prone to soil-borne diseases
    and mulching your plants at the right time
    ensures that the soil wont splash up onto the
    plants, during a rainstorm, for example.

12
  • What Is The Difference Between All The Types
    Of Mulch?
  • People use all sorts of things to mulch their
    gardens straw, grass clippings, compost, wood
    chips, sawdust and so on. There are merits to all
    of them, and some downsides to many. Straw, for
    example, can attract vermin and may also contain
    some weed seeds, which really would defeat the
    purpose of using it in your garden.

13
  • Grass clippings are useful to mix in with
    mulch if theyre green because while in that
    stage, they contain plenty of nitrogen and other
    nutrients. As the grass breaks down in the soil,
    those nutrients will be released and be good for
    your beds.

14
  • Wood chips and shredded bark are the ideal
    forms of mulch, as they dont come with the
    downsides of some of the others and are not only
    functional but add a lot of beauty to a
    gardenscape.

15
  • When Should You Apply Mulch To Your Garden?
  • You can mulch anytime of year many people do
    it to beautify their garden beds in the spring
    and summer, as well as to minimize weed
    infestations. It creates a colour infusion or a
    lovely base for your grasses and flowers and will
    enhance everything from garden beds to pool
    decks.

16
  • The critical time of year to mulch that you
    should not miss however is in the fall, where the
    materials provide a blanket for your garden, to
    safeguard it through the winter months and help
    the ground retain the moisture it will need to be
    lush and full in the spring.

17
  • Whether spring or fall, just pile the mulch at
    the base of trees, plants and shrubs and if
    youre covering a wider area, like a garden bed,
    make sure that you add a substantial enough
    layertwo to four inches ought to do the trickto
    be effective in both moisture retention and weed
    prevention.
