There are many benefits to using mulch in your yard. While you may think of this as a springtime or warm weather task, mulch can be increasingly beneficial to your garden during the cold winter months as well. Aside from keeping the soil insulated and warm during cooler temperatures, mulch also conserves moisture in the soil and provides a food source for earthworms, microbes and beneficial insects.
In fact, wood mulches especially benefit from the dormancy of plants during the winter months. During the decomposition process, wood mulch can temporarily reduce the amount nitrogen available to plants. However, as plants enter a period of slow growth, this impact is even more minimal.
Even if you decide to mulch in late winter, there are still benefits to be had – including suppressing weeds when your spring garden blooms.
No matter what time of year, follow these reminders and tips:
