Mulching is an essential part of good garden practices and if ever you done a landscaping around your home, you know that a generous layer of mulch around your plants can give your garden a nice finished look. But it’s about a lot more than just looks. Mulch is very functional. It can keep the moisture in and weeds out. And with the fall and winter ahead, it can offer your plant some measure of protection. I’ve actually brought things through that work with garden that’s called hardy I'm putting an extra layer of mulch on them.
Now there’s a whole range of mulches to choose from. Various kinds of straws, wood chips, even newspapers. But what I like to use in my flower beds is a ground that pine bark. I like it because it looks natural in my garden. And while eventually, it will decompose and work itself into the soil because it’s a bark, it’s very durable.
Let me explain what I mean by this. You see the outer covering of a bark of a tree acts as a protective layer. It’s actually water proof and it’s made water proof by waxes and suberin which don’t exist in the core of the tree so it just make sense that bark products will be longer lasting in your flower bed.
The longevity of a bark as a mulch has actually been studied and found that it only decompose about 30% having been on the ground for up to two years. Of course the larger the chip, the longer it last. If you’re looking for something very long lasting, you might get a bark to try. From the garden, I’m Allen Smith.
