Don’t wait too long to schedule mulch delivery. Applying a thick blanket of high-quality organic mulch in the early winter days is one of the easiest and most effective ways to preserve the health and beauty of your Utah landscape.
Winter mulching offers clear benefits in areas that get freezing temperatures. Here, we explain why you should consider scheduling mulch delivery soon.
Keep Your Plants in Dormancy
Perennial shrubs, trees and plants go into dormancy when the ground freezes in order to conserve their energy for growth in the spring. Mulching allows them to remain dormant, as it insulates the plant roots and keeps the soil temperature constant. Without winter mulch application, a sudden warm spell could end the dormancy and trigger new growth at the wrong time.
Prevent Frost Heaving
Rapid temperature fluctuations not only pull plants out of dormancy, they can also heave plants up out of the soil. And when freeze-and-thaw cycles expose their crowns or upper root systems, the chances of survival are slim. After mulch delivery and application of a three- to four-inch layer over the plant roots, frost heaving is highly unlikely.
Line Your Garden Paths
With the temperature fluctuations and winter precipitation, any dirt paths you have on your Utah property can easily turn to mud. To avoid this, arrange for mulch delivery. Cover your garden paths with a good layer of mulch, and you won’t have to walk through any mud or muck when you’re tending to the landscape.
Prepare for the Utah Winter
For the best results from winter mulching, tackle the task soon after the first hard frost hits your part of Utah. If freezing temperatures have already arrived, take the better-late-than-never approach – don’t simply skip mulch delivery, as that will leave your plants vulnerable all winter long.
