Many homeowners like the idea of adding rock and mulch to their landscape – it makes your property stand out. There are other advantages, though, in addition to adding curb appeal. Here are some of the benefits of mulch and rock installation:
Soil erosion: When you add rock or mulch to your soil, it helps prevent soil erosion, leaving your soil healthier and more able to thrive.
Weed control: A layer of rock and mulch will help keep unwanted weeds at bay by preventing them from growing and breathing. And if any weeds can grow, they’ll be easier to identify and remove because they won’t be able to create deep roots.
Improves moisture retention: Mulch and rock slow down the process of evaporation and helps keep soil moisture for longer periods of time. Plus, it reduces the need for watering.

Q. What is mulch and what types are there to choose from?
A. Mulch is defined as any layer of material used to cover the surface of soil. Mulch serves as a protective barrier against the wind, heat, and evaporation, and keeps soil moist and fertile. There are two kinds of mulch – organic and inorganic. Examples of organic includes grass clippings, straw, shredded bark, wood chips, compost, pine needles, sawdust, and shredded leaves. Inorganic types are geotextiles and black plastic. Organic mulches decompose, so they need to be replaced more often than inorganic, however, most landscapers prefer using organic because it’s so much healthier for the soil.
Q. Which is better for landscaping, rock or mulch?
A. Each type has its own benefits and advantages. Rocks are great for
preventing weeds and smothering existing weeds. Plus, they work well with low-water gardens and ponds. Stones can get very hot in the summer, though, so they draw a lot of heat in which isn’t always the best if you want your garden to thrive. On the other hand, mulch, especially organic types, are great for keeping your soil moist and healthy. If you opt for organic, keep in mind it will need to be replaced more than man-made mulch.
