Did you know you can apply fall mulch just like you do in spring, adding enough to refresh what’s broken down. Fall mulch works like spring mulch to retain soil moisture, suppress weed growth and protect bare soil from erosion. But it benefits in a few more ways:
Fall mulch insulates soil, providing a warmer environment for the soil-food web, including earthworms and microbes. Warm soil means these organisms stay active longer into the cold season, improving your soil.
Fall mulch insulates plant roots. In coldest regions, soil may eventually freeze solid in the heart of winter, but in many areas, soil cycles through freezing and thawing all winter long. Those freeze-thaw patterns put stress on anything in the top few inches of soil, including plant roots. Mulch moderates the temperature swing.
If you have rock and want to change the look of your landscape you can cover rock with 3-4 inches of mulch.
