York Nursery applies decorative mulch to your flowerbeds to enhance their appearance. But, what you may not know, is that it suppresses weed growth, therefore, reducing time spent weeding and allowing you more relaxation time. With fewer weeds to contend with, your desired plants will thrive much better. Mulch also helps retain soil moisture, reducing your watering time. Over the winter time, mulch helps to insulate the plants’ roots from the harmful effects of the freeze/thaw cycle and any severe cold temperatures.
