After all, a picturesque pool goes hand-in-hand with an enchanting garden, right? So, let’s talk about mulching and how to incorporate this “green-thumbed secret” into your Woodlands garden.

What is Mulching, Anyway?

Mulching might sound like one of those gardening terms that would make you wish for a green thumb. But worry not, green-thumbed or not, we’re here to break it down for you. Mulch is a layer of material applied to the top of the soil. It’s practically a best friend to any type of garden – big, small, colorful, or leafy – you name it!

Why mulch? That’s Why.

Mulching offers numerous benefits. It conserves moisture, improves the health and productivity of your soil, and reduces weed growth. Plus, it gives your garden a neat, finished appearance, making it really stand out – just like that first cannonball into your pool on a scorching Texas day!

Spreading The Mulch Love: A Few Simple Steps

  1. Timing is Key: In The Woodlands, the best time to apply mulch is in early summer when the soil has properly warmed up. Mulch can be pretty good at insulating, and we wouldn’t want to keep the soil too cool while your plants are trying to grow, would we?
  2. Don’t Overdo It: Apply a layer of mulch approximately 2-3 inches thick. Too much mulch can suffocate plant roots, and too little may not effectively prevent weed growth.
  3. Keep Your Distance: Make sure you leave some space around the base of plants. We’d hate to see your lovely plants being overwhelmed by enthusiastic mulch application!
