The many advantage of mulch and rock.

Aside from the visual impact that mulch and rock can bring to your landscaping beds, these ground covers serve a variety of other benefits including:

  • Weed Control: Both rock and mulch block pesky weeds from peeking up through the surface of your landscape beds.
  • Moisture Retention: Mulch is known to retain moisture from the rain and morning dew, which helps keep your plants looking fresh, hydrated, and full of life. Rock is ideal for plants which require sufficient drainage, like succulents.
  • Insulation: Ground covers help protect your plants from the heat as well as cooler temepratures. This helps to keep a consistent temperature through out the day.
  • Prevents Soil Erosion: As it rains, properly installed mulch and rock will help the soil from eroding away from the landscape bed.

For the greatest visual, weed blocking, and moisture control benefits, cover the entire surface area of flower beds at a depth of 2-3 inches.
