Do you know that soil without mulch is prone to erosion? Wind, rain and even sprinklers can cause erosion of unprotected soil, in no time. It is the erosion that causes a lot of problems for your plants. The problem has the effect of killing a plant or tree. Worst of all, erosion depletes essential nutrients from the soil. Plants need healthy food to survive. Important nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen are removed from the soil in the absence of mulch or ground cover.

It seems too good to be true, but mulch greatly reduces weed growth. If you’ve been spending hours and hours weeding your flower beds, you really need to help yourself mulch properly before you finish the job. Otherwise, the weeds will grow back before you know it, and you’ll have work to do all over again.Of course, the weeds will eventually grow back. But they will be much less in the future.

How long will plastic mulch last?

Plastic mulch can last very long, usually more than 2 years because we produce plastic mulch that contains anti UV.

It is because when the mulch is exposed to the elements, it will begin the decomposition process and start to change its appearance, and after one to two years of usage, the mulch will start to lose color. Therefore, by this time, we may notice bare spots in our yard and this signifies that we should replace the old mulch.

Why do farmers cover fields with plastic?

It is because plastic will trap the heat of the sun on cold soil, and warm it up faster, and keep it from cooling of at night, meaning we can punch holes in it and plant our plants sooner, and this means that we can harvest our plants earlier. Plastic mulch also does a good job in conserving water, by preventing excess evaporation, and it keeps weeds down as well. Once in a while, we can see plastic put out at other times, for the explicit purpose of smothering the grass and weeds under it. And this will leave mostly bare soil which is helpful in starting a new crop which will be planted shortly after removing the plastic and doing whatever plowing or cultivating is necessary.

Does plastic mulch let water through?

Plastic mulch can reduce soil evaporation by up to 70 percent. Be aware though, that plants placed in plastic mulch don’t get water readily from rainfall or overhead sprinklers so install soaker hoses under the mulch.
