Mulch Questions & Answers
Question: Will decomposing mulch draw nitrogen from the ground and affect the health of my plants?
ANSWER > NO. Michigan State University studies have indicated that there is some Nitrogen used in the decomposition, but it is only in a thin layer at the soil/mulch surface interface. It does not affect the health of plants. In fact, the water retention from mulch, and the added nutrients from the decomposition greatly benefit plants.
Question: Will the dye from colored mulches affect my plants?
ANSWER > NO. The colors are naturally occurring products.
Question: Should I use a weed barrier under my mulch?
ANSWER > NO. Mulch can be a natural weed deterent when installed at the depth of 3-4". As the mulch decomposes, weeds will start to grow on top of the weed barrier. An additional granular product such as Hi-Yield Weed & Grass Stopper or Preen can be used to prevent weeds.
Question: How long will my mulch last, and do I have to pull out the old mulch before adding new?
ANSWER > Typically, mulch is topped off every year for appearance. Colored mulches will last longer than natural mulch as they are all wood and are dyed for color. If mulch is deep enough sometimes it can be raked to refresh its color. When mulch builds up over time, it could be necessary to remove the old mulch.
