Benefits of Wood Fiber Mulch
Wood fiber landscape mulch, whether colored or natural, provides many benefits to soil, plants, and trees.
Landscape mulch can be produced from tree bark, pallet waste, slab wood, tree care waste—virtually any clean, untreated wood fiber.
Reduces Landscape and Gardening Maintenance
- Mulch mimics the properties of a forest floor, creating a mat of wood fiber that inhibits weed growth.
- Mulch helps retain moisture, reducing watering requirements.
- Mulch provides a buffer around trees and plants to prevent damage from lawn equipment.
Enhances Soil Structure
- The use of mulch reduces soil erosion from wind and precipitation.
- Mulch allows better water penetration by preventing soil from crusting and compacting, while also insulating the soil to reduce evaporation.
- Mulch provides nutrients to the soil as it slowly decomposes.
Promotes Growth of Desirable Plants
- Mulch inhibits the growth of weeds, allowing flowers and other desirable plants to grow without competition for sunlight and water.
