If you are wondering how converting your felled tree into mulch can benefit you, here are some reasons why you should consider such a conversion.
Mulch Puts Weeds in Check
Weeds need sunlight for growth. When you use mulch, it serves as a barrier, obstructing sunlight from reaching the weeds, thus arresting their growth.
Mulch Helps Retain Moisture
The presence of mulch ensures that the soil has enough moisture. Organic mulch consists of wood chips and other tree debris such as pine straws and needles, crushed leaves and grass clippings.
This mixture is spread on the top layer of the soil. This organic mulch absorbs water and slows down evaporation, thereby preventing loss of water.
Water retention of soil is significant especially during warmer climates when plants need more water. By helping retain moisture, mulch also helps you save on water usage bills.
Mulch Improves Soil Health
Heavy rains can carry away soil nutrients, but the presence of mulch serves as a barrier, preventing such occurrence and preserving soil health and fertility.
What’s more, the organic materials used in the soil decompose naturally and in the process release nutrients into the soil. This adds to the nutrient quotient of the soil further.
Mulch also prevents soil erosion, a phenomenon where soil’s top layer – the most nutrient-rich layer of soil – is washed away by water. As a layer between the soil and water, the mulch withstands the impact, thereby lessening its force on the soil.
Another way organic wood chip mulch benefits soil is by attracting earthworms. Earthworms increase the quantity of water and air that reaches the soil. They also bring down organic matter from above the soil, to soil interiors, increasing thereby its nutritional quotient.
Mulch Helps with Pest Control
Mulch prepared from certain tree debris, especially trees with natural oils and fragrance, can keep pests at bay.
Mulch Saves you Money
Preparing your own mulch is a cost-effective alternative to inorganic mulch, which can be expensive. Buying organic mulches is affordable, but it needs to be replaced regularly, which adds to the cost.
Why spend money when you have precious mulch-making materials in your own garden?
