Reducing the light that hits the soil reduces weed growth. A layer of groundcover can prevent the germination of many weeds. Sunlight is blocked, which helps discourage weed growth without the need for herbicides.
Water from rains and sprinkler systems trickle down through the layers and reach the root systems of plants. Sunlight is blocked, which prevents evaporation, and allows for better water retention.
Mulch and rocks serve as a useful tool to apply in certain areas to prevent recurring erosion problems.
Groundcover serves as an insulating blanket, keeping your plants cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Extreme heat and cold can damage plants and cause nutrients to break down faster.
Organic materials break down over time, adding valuable material to your soils.
Quite simply, mulch just looks great. Mulch is often the finishing touch that brings uniformity to a great landscape design.
