Our Favourite Reasons to add Mulch in Fall!

Tips, Gardening | November 21, 2023

There are many benefits to adding a layer of mulch to your garden in fall, check out our some of our favourite reasons!

1. Provides Insulation
Mulching helps to insulate plant roots by raising the freezing point of the soil and leveling out the temperature fluctuations that are most common in autumn. Cycles of freezing and thawing can wreak havoc on delicate root systems and a layer of mulch can reduce the impacts of these temperature swings, helping your plants remain strong and experience less stress.

2. Enrich Your Soil
All our products are organic and as the organic matter in mulch breaks down, it releases nutrients, minerals and nitrogen to enrich your soil throughout fall and winter. Healthier soil leads to healthier shoots and blooms in spring! Fall mulching also gives soil-improving earthworms and microbes added warmth and quality food for the winter.

3. Preserve and Protects Perennials
Fall is the perfect time to add a layer of mulch around your perennials. Mulch protects and insulates your plants from changing temperatures, preventing roots and stalks from getting stressed or frostbitten. Our organic mulches will also break down over time, providing valuable nutrients into the soil for happy and healthy plants.

4. Reduce Weeds Come Spring!
Add a layer of mulch in fall to enjoy less weeds in spring! Mulch not only nourishes the soil, it also helps to suppress weed growth by suffocating weeds and depriving them of needed sunlight.

5. Stop Soil Erosion
Our wintertime wind, rain and snow can cause soil erosion, leaving your plants exposed to the elements and losing valuable soil. Mulching prevents soil erosion by forming a barrier between the topsoil and the elements. Add a layer of mulch 2-4 inches deep to your garden and landscaped areas to prevent losing your soil at protect your plants, trees and shrubs throughout the changing seasons.
