How to Use Landscaping Mulch and Benefits

For most homeowners, landscaping mulch is use to beautify their yard, but it does a lot more. Here a few benefits that come from proper mulch application:

  • Helps control the weeds, creating a beautiful yard with a lot less effort.
  • Mulching can also improve soil fertility and soil structure over time and can act as an insulator, keeping the soil warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
