How to Properly Mulch Around a Tree
Mulch is one of the best finishing touches you can add to any tree or landscape bed, but mulch does much more than provide a clean look and suppress weeds. In this video, you will learn the important benefits that mulch can provide with a step-by-step guide on how to properly mulch around a tree.
Mulch can help:
- Minimize competition between turf and trees for nutrients in the soil
- Regulate soil temperature
- Retain soil moisture
- Protect trees from equipment damage
- Reduce soil compaction over time
Too much of a good thing can be bad, so it’s important to know the correct amount of mulch to put down and how to correctly do it.
