If you mulch during the summer, then the sun’s rays don’t strike the soil, keeping it cooler and moister.  This is beneficial to your plants so that they don’t stress from the heat.

In addition, soil that remains moister for a longer period of time needs to be watered less. You can save time and money by cutting back on your watering.

“We carry mulch in bags of two cubic feet. The best time to mulch would be in early spring and then again in fall,” Matt Huey of Sunset Nursery said.

Sunset Nursery carries a variety of plants in addition to offering maintenance and installation services. Contact them at 661-255-8777 or pay them a visit at 23256 Lyons Avenue.
