4 Residential Uses for Mulch

You’ve heard about the benefits of mulch, but did you know that you can use it several different ways around the house? We at Professional Property Maintenance of Dayton, OH want to give you a few tips on how you can utilize mulch this summer.


1. Boost curb appeal.

There’s something about a fresh blanket of mulch in your flower beds that makes your home and landscaping look better. Mulching gives your plants and flowers a backdrop so they can shine. Plus, mulch helps your home’s exterior look neat, clean, and finished.

2. Soften the landing.

Are you looking for a material to put underneath your kids’ swing set, cushioning their play? Mulch is a good alternative to other more-expensive (and often not as soft) playground bedding.

3. Deter weed growth.

An ample layer of mulch in your landscaping beds or your garden can help keep weed growth at bay. Just by mulching, you can cut down on the time you spend picking weeds—giving you time to play in the pool or take a bike ride.

4. Feed your garden.

Are you growing vegetables or other plants in your garden? Choose organic mulch, because not only does it help your garden’s soil retain moisture, but as the mulch decomposes, it also adds nutrients to your soil and plants.
