Mulching Garden Beds



For those that don't know, mulching garden beds has many benefits. For one, a thick layer of mulch in garden beds makes for cooler soil temperatures in summer. These cooler temperatures are also appealing to earthworms. Mulching garden beds conserves moisture. In winter, mulch keeps the garden beds from freezing and thawing repeatedly. Mulching garden beds also helps to add organic matter to the soil around your plants when the mulch breaks down. Mulch is more attractive in flower beds than just plain dirt. Unless, of course, you're one of the lucky ones and you have perfect, rich, dark garden soil, which is a jewel in any garden. Mulch makes watering plants a simple task in the summer. Most soils in the summer have a lot of surface tension when dry and can be a pain to water thoroughly as the water tends to drain off instead of soaking in. I encourage you, as a resourceful gardener, to find the many more valuable uses of mulching roses or your garden beds. Happy Gardening!
