Mulch is typically applied using different methods, determined by the type of mulch and the size of the area. Hand installation is suitable for small areas, while larger areas may require a wheelbarrow or ATV/UTV for spreading.

When Should You Use Mulch For Your Lawn?

Enhancing your lawn with mulch offers numerous benefits, enriching both grass and soil health while minimizing maintenance efforts. Here’s why mulching is a wise choice for your landscape:

  1. Nutrient Enrichment: Mulch delivers a gradual release of essential nutrients, bolstering soil health and vitality, particularly in areas where grass struggles to thrive.
  2. Weed Management: By inhibiting weed growth, mulch creates an environment where grass can flourish without competition for water, sunlight, and nutrients.
  3. Root Protection: Mulch acts as a protective barrier for grass roots, moderating soil temperature. It keeps roots cooler in summer and insulates them from cold temperatures during winter, promoting robust growth year-round.
  4. Time and Cost Savings: Incorporating mulch into your lawn care regimen can lead to significant time and cost savings over time. With reduced watering, weeding, and fertilizing requirements, you can enjoy a healthier lawn with less effort and expense.
