Mulch and Topsoil: Give Plants the Most Nutrients

Maintaining a beautiful garden at home or the office is becoming increasingly complicated. A small or large green space provides an escape from the chaos of city life and tranquility and harmony with nature. Green spaces look fantastic in landscaping magazines, but getting them to look like that in your home isn’t quite as easy as it seems. One of the most frequently asked questions at Professional Ground Covers is: “Which materials and products are the best to keep your green space in optimal conditions?” In this article, we’ll tell you!

Two ingredients are the basis of the perfect recipe of nutrients your plants require: mulch and topsoil.

Organic Mulch

Organic mulch is comprised of decomposed (dead) plant matter. As it disintegrates and degrades, it provides nutrients to the soil and enhances better plant growth.

Organic mulch could be:

  • Chopped dried leaves
  • Chopped grass
  • Sawdust from chopped wood

Although your garden’s soil is naturally rich in nutrients, it will eventually become less hearty over time. Occasionally, the soil will need some fertilizer to rejuvenate it and benefit the plants. Laying down good mulch is a cost-effective way to enhance the quality of the soil and keep your plants healthy.

Topsoil Overview

Topsoil, also known as black soil, is a mixture of soil and compost. This compost comes from the decomposition of organic plant and animal waste, which provides the soil with many nutrients and excellent moisture-retaining properties.

Topsoil Benefits and Uses

  • It has a large number of nutrients. Since compost is made with decomposed organic matter, it´s a living soil with many good bacteria, some of which help increase nitrogen levels.Mulch and Topsoil Give Plants the Most Nutrients
  • Topsoil mixed with regular soil improves its texture, which facilitates the growth of plant roots and attracts earthworms and other insects beneficial to the plant
  • It improves water retention in sandy soils and drainage in clay soils
  • It has excellent fertilizing abilities
  • It leaves the ground ready for planting flower or vegetable gardens, trees, lawns, orchards, etc., facilitating the growth of the plants and helping them develop more robust resistance to diseases or pests.
