Save Water, Protect Your Plants From Freezing, Save Money!

How to save water, money and protect your plants from freezing

save water with mulch ccartoonIt’s simple, when there’s  layer of mulch on top of your garden, it helps lock in moisture that would otherwise evaporate, reduces the weed population, and enriches your soil by retaining water. During cold seasons, it can protect more delicate plants from freezing temperatures. in hot weather, it can help keep the soil cool.

There are lots of mulching materials, including leaf mulch (shredded leaves), pine bark, hardwood bark, grass clippings and yard waste, compost, gravel, straw, coconut fibers, and even mulching fabrics. Your local municipality may offer free mulch. Check with your local garden center or research online to find out the right mulch for your plants, and follow these guidelines when applying:

  • Save Water By Mulching Tip #1. Weed before you mulch
  • Save Water By Mulching Tip #2. For new beds, apply mulch to a depth of 3 to 6 inches (7.5 to 15 cm)
  • Save Water By Mulching Tip #3. For established beds, 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm) is usually plenty
  • Save Water By Mulching Tip #4. Leave some space around the base of each plant so air can circulate
  • Save Water By Mulching Tip #5. Keep your mulch layer intact, adding more as needed to prevent any bare spots
  • Save Water By Mulching Tip #6. Avoid cocoa shell mulch, which can be toxic to pets
