  • Mulch one more time before winter

    Posted on : 30-09-2020 | By : Rohinton Gatta | In : Building Trends

    Adding an extra layer of mulch before frosts penetrate the ground can be one of the most beneficial decisions you can make for your garden. In spring and summer  we use mulch to retain moisture in the soil, keep the weeds at bay and add a beautiful, consistent texture to our landscaping.

    In the winter, mulch acts as a protector from the freeze thaw cycle and protects vulnerable roots.

    Plants enter a dormant mode during winter months. This helps protect them from frosts. However, the winter sun is intense and can heat up the first few inches of soil by mid-day.  New plants put in the ground in fall and plants with shallow roots are especially vulnerable to this.

    You might have seen early blooms from plants. This is why. They’ll begin to exit their dormant mode expending energy making new growth.  This can damage plants and even cause them to die in spring.

    One last layer of mulch in the fall will keep the ground from warming too much under the winter sun. Shallow roots will be protected and your garden will be healthier come spring.

    Contact your local Ferrell Builders Supply to discuss mulch options for your garden this fall.
