Mulching is great for your lawn because it offers a number of benefits. It will make your plants look healthier and it should be a regular practice.Your plants need a constant supply of water
and nutrients and mulch provides them with those nutrients when it breaks down. As mulch breaks after rain, it adds humus to the soil, which increases organic matter in the soils and improves the water holding capacity of soils. It releases nitrogen and phosphorous which are essential for the soil. It also provides habitat for microorganisms that keep the plants healthy. Clippings recycle nutrients that are essential for roots so they should be restored back to the soil. So, clippings can save the amount of fertilizer application which will save time, money, and labor. We need these clippings to break down so they can provide a habitat for microorganisms essential for plants. The clippings need to be as small as possible for them to break down quickly and not add up to the thatch layer. This can be achieved through regular lawn mowing. Weed removal is also required before mulching.
