Root of the problem: mounds of mulch

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Mulch is a standard form of soil and winter protection for many shallow-rooted plants. However, too much mulch can be too much of a good thing.

The availability and low cost of bark-type mulch materials has created an over-mulching disease in our landscapes. Gardeners have come to think of mulch materials as wonder products that provide endless benefit to our plants.

Misuse of mulch materials decreases a landscape's aesthetic value by changing the appearance of a plant. Misuse of mulch can also kill many of the materials it is intended to help and protect.
