They say timing is everything, and knowing the right time to mulch is no exception.  Planning your mulching time will benefit you and your yard in so many ways.   Not only does it look attractive, but it also helps to regulate soil temperature and moisture while enriching the soil and preventing erosion.  With these benefits in mind, beginning the mulching process in early to mid spring is the best idea.  Too early in the season slows down the warming process of the soil and moving too late into the fall can prevent plant dormancy which is key to helping plants survive cold temperatures.  Don’t forget that mulching in the spring will help to catch the weeds before they shoot up, limiting weed growth and helping plants thrive.  It is also easier to mulch before your perennials start to sprout which can save time and effort!  Ask about your mulching options with our experts!
