Duke Transport Discusses the Helpfulness of Mulch and Why You Might Need It

As someone who does (or doesn’t) maintain the landscape of a residential or commercial property, you may have heard that mulch is vital for weed control and essential for water retention. However, what is mulch and what makes so many home and business owners want to purchase it every spring (aside from what we just mentioned?)

As a leading provider of mulch in Bucks County, PA, and many other surrounding areas of NJ and DE, we would like to shed some light on what mulch is and what makes it such a great material.

What is it?

Simply put, mulch is a material that’s placed around plants and on the surface of soil that aids in both enriching and insulating the soil.

If you use mulch, you can accomplish a variety of things:

  • Keep soil cool in the summer and warm in the winter
  • Help essential organisms, such as earthworms, make the soil healthy
  • Enhance the soil’s drainage and structure
  • Eliminate the stress put on shallow-rooted plants
  • Suppress weed growth and conserve moisture

What’s the ideal mulch?

One that’s not only affordable for you, but that’s readily available, stays in place, is easy to apply, and contains some organic materials.

What type of mulch do we sell here at Duke Transport?
