Mulch is ground-up plant material mixed together to form chunks or strips that are spread over plants and grass for protection. It is used for aesthetic purposes but most importantly it protects your grass and plants. It also enriches the soil and helps to retain soil moisture. If you are having landscaping performed by WVC Landscaping Pros then you should be having mulch applied. It is offered in different colors and is beneficial for every type of plant species. In many cases, our landscapers will apply the wood chips to help prevent weeds from coming through. The benefit to your plant is that the material from the mulch will eventually break down and start to provide nutrients to the plant. This becomes a natural fertilizer for the plants and grass. Mulching is one of the safest and most effective methods for treating your lawn. If you’re lawn doesn’t look as good as it used to, it might be because you don’t have any mulch applied to it.

Why Mulch Is Necessary
There are some hazards to your plants and lawn that we are not always prepared for, such as changes in the temperature of the ground.

With mulch over them, it protects the plants from their root with an insulated barrier that will prevent air from getting trapped. This helps keep your bushes, trees, lawn, and plants safe from damages caused by extreme temperatures.
