Mulch is an organic substance that breaks down over time. That means if you have a mulch ground cover in your landscape beds, it will have to be replenished, and the best time of year to do that in Texas is springtime. It's important to replenish your ground cover each spring because it will protect the plants in your landscape beds from drastic weather changes or fluctuating temperatures so they stay beautiful and strong. It will also prevent weeds from sprouting, which is especially beneficial during the spring when they start to germinate. Finally, mulch will help your landscape beds retain soil moisture as we head into the hotter summer months, keeping your plants hydrated without as much watering from you.
Mulch will protect the plants in your landscape beds from drastic weather changes.
Here in Texas, the transition from the colder weather during the winter to the warmer temperatures of spring, and eventually to the scorching heat of summer, can negatively affect your plants. Because of this, it’s best to replenish the mulch in your landscape beds each spring to protect them from such drastic weather changes. When there is a thick enough layer of mulch, it will also ensure that the soil temperature stays regulated and doesn't become too hot or too cold during the different seasons.
A mulch ground cover should be about 2-3 inches thick; anything more can smother your plants, while anything less won't provide all its intended benefits.
Mulch prevents weed growth in your landscape beds, especially during the spring when they germinate.
Weeds will steal nutrients from your plants if they take over your landscape beds, and the spring season is when many of them start to germinate. Fortunately, that's where a mulch ground cover comes in! When you replenish the mulch in your landscape beds each spring, it'll stop weeds from sprouting. It does this by covering the soil, preventing weed seeds from embedding, and also blocking any existing ones from reaching the resources they need to grow. That way, your plants will be the only growth in your landscape beds, and they can stay healthy and beautiful throughout the growing season.
Replenishing the mulch in your landscape beds in the spring will help them retain moisture.
The hot summer season can be stressful on your plants and cause water to evaporate that much quicker, meaning you’ll end up needing to do double the watering to keep them hydrated. On the other hand, replenishing the mulch in your landscape beds each spring is just the solution you need! This ground cover will help the soil retain moisture by providing an additional layer that will keep the water from evaporating as rapidly. Plus, you’ll be able to water your plants less since the soil will stay moist and keep them hydrated for longer.
