Mulch is useful to insulate the soil beneath your plants, and trees, and to protect their root systems. There are choices to make when it comes to mulching. Some types will need to be removed in the Springtime – pine straw, for example. If you don’t have a lot of time to devote to your landscaping in Denver, look for a mulch that is easy to apply, and maintain, like wood chips, or bark.
Crushed stone mulch is a different option, more popular for use around trees, and succulents than flowering plants.
