Advantages Of Mulching.
If you have a newly planted tree in your home it is very important to mulching it so that it can get the numerous advantages that mulching has apart from enhancing fast growth of the tree.
With mulching the newly grown tree gets to be safe from harsh temperature that might destroy it because mulching prevents the hot sun and winds from penetrating the soil of which at the end it conserves the coolness and the moisture of the soil so the tree cannot be affected by any harsh temperature. The sols that supports that tree that you recently planted and is growing fine since you applied mulch on it cannot be made to have erosion because the mulch on is very thick and heavy that heavy rains or strong winds cannot carry it away from the soil ten destroy the soil which will end up destroying the tree so mulching protects both soil and tree.
The soil’s fertility is improved when mulching is done to a tree especially when it rails the rain tends to carry the minerals and plant nutrients that the materials which are made on the mulch contains then when it reach the soil it’s structure is improves and the plants nutrients improves the soil fertility too. When farmers apply mulching to their farm before weeds start growing in them they will save their selves a lot of time since the weeds will be few so they will use less time to remove them and the need for cultivation will be reduced because mulching makes the soil to be loose always.
Mulching reduces fungal and rot diseases that may be caused when the soil comes in contact with the fruit and leaves of the plant especially if you mulch tomatoes or melons that are usually prone to fungal diseases. The plants that you will mulch will get nutrients direct since there will be no root competition as mulching does make it hard for weeds to grow around the plats so the plant will not share its nutrients with anyone or get weakened because of high competition of roots.
The soil is protected from evaporation when you apply mulching to plants this happens when mulching reduces water use up to 75%b hence making it hard for evaporation to occur making the soil to be safe from being damaged and also the plant that is supported by the soil. When you apply mulching either to a newly planted tree or to your garden it will get rich natural fertiliser that comes from warm castings which are encouraged to be in the soil by mulching hence making the plat to grow very fast as the soil will always be filled with fertilisers.
