Residential Mulch and Pine Needles
In any residential setting, mulch and pine needles are very important to the health of your landscaping. Your plants need to establish strong roots; in order to do this they need moisture. It is wise to use mulch and pine needles in your beds of trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals.
Mulching is an essential practice to establish plantings. Mulch helps conserve the moisture in the root ball of new plants until they establish roots in the adjacent soil. Additionally, mulch helps discourage weeds, which may compete with new plantings for light, water and nutrients. Using pine needles has benefits as well. While it doesn’t help preserve moisture as much as bark, it does preserve some moisture by shading the soil. It is also very effective for deterring weeds. It contains terpenes, which have a retardant effect on the germination of weeds.
