The Basics of Winter Mulching in Monkton

The Basics of Winter Mulching in Monkton

For many Monkton homeowners, mulching is the furthest thing from their minds. At least, this is likely the case during the winter holidays.

For many Monkton homeowners, mulch is the furthest thing from their minds. At least, this is likely the case during the winter holidays. Even though you may not expect it, it is possible to lay down some mulch during the winter. It will benefit your garden and landscape to do so. Let’s find out more information together.

Weather Protection

No matter what part of Maryland you currently live in, you can agree that winter weather here is unpleasant. You can never really tell if there’s going to be snow, ice, and wind that will ruin your landscaping efforts. Sometimes the weather can’t make up its mind whether there will be any precipitation that day, either. Regardless of how wet, dry, or cold it is, mulching is an excellent investment for your Monkton yard. When you use mulch, you can shield the roots of all your plants from hard frosts that can kill them before they get a chance to flourish. Mulch also helps keep the soil in place, preventing the damaging effects of erosion.

Plus, even in the depths of winter, there will occasionally be days where it unusually warm. Do you remember the Christmas Day where it was still seventy-five degrees and humid outside? The plants will be tempted to start sprouting again, but the mulch will help keep that from happening too soon.   

Applying the Mulch

The temperatures are plunging. The best time to do some winter mulching in Monkton is after temperatures hit 25 degrees at night. Your annuals are probably dormant or dead by now. Even so, once you have decided to mulch, the next step is to apply it. Don’t overdo it, because you can destroy your Monkton landscape without meaning to; put down four inches worth of mulch, at most.
