Do you have your own garden or are you running a business that supplies fruits or maybe ornamental plants or any kinds of plants for that matter? Taking care of different kinds of plants can be taxing as you have so many things to be wary of. For one, you will worry about the climate like if it’s too hot, your plants might wither if not watered enough and if it’s always raining as well, you will also be worried if your plants will still wither because of too much water. Indeed it is not easy to maintain different kinds of plants at the same time. Especially that it is for business, and you have probably invested a lot of money in it, you must make sure that no foreign elements that can harm your plants like pests and may other hazardous creatures. One of the ways that you can do to protect your plants is the process of mulching.
Yes, through mulching, your plants can be protected as it is a method where your plants will be covered with some kinds of materials so that they will be protected and at the same time, this procedure will also generate a number of functions. Among the most important functions and benefits are listed below:
- Weeds will be minimized when your garden is mulched. You see, it is a normal occurrence that weeds will just sprout everywhere. However, these weeds are just like any normal plants. Without water and proper sunlight, they can’t also grow properly thus it goes without saying that in covered area, weeds can hardly sprout and your plants will then be free of them. For sure you already know that weeds can consume the nutrients your plants could have enjoyed. So, without them, they can then enjoy the nutrients around them for themselves.
- Mulching retains water. Thus if the weather is really hot like these days, you will not be worried that your plants might wither because of lack of water though of course, you also need to water them. But you need not water that much anymore. So, it goes without saying that not only that your plants will be taken care of, but at the same time, you will also save on your water bill. It will be like hitting two birds with a single stone with the use of mulching procedure.
- Because of mulching, rain water will not have that strong impact as it lands to the soil as mulching can lessen its strength thus in a way, mulching can also prevent soil erosion. In short, it breaks the strength of rain water as it lands on the soil.
