Any season is a great time to act on your mulch garden ideas.
Mulch in Spring
If you want to know when to mulch to get the most benefits for your garden, experts recommend laying mulch after spring planting. Knowing how to lay mulch properly in spring can help:
- Control weeds
- Enrich soil nutrients
- Retain moisture
- Insulate plants from freeze and heavy rains
- Add visual appeal
We recommend our Triple Cocoa Black Mulch because it absorbs heat on warm, sunny days and slows the evaporation of water from soil.
Mulch in Autumn and Winter
Spreading mulch in autumn or winter months helps create a firm space to assist plants from shifting too much as water in the soil freezes, thaws and then refreezes.
Other Times to Mulch
If used around a yard or a contained area such as flower beds or a mailbox, apply mulch whenever you want to enhance landscaping and curb appeal. When organic mulch has fully decomposed down into the ground it’s time to replenish and refresh.
