It provides the extra moisture that is trapped in it so plants have a better chance of surviving the hot summer days, ensure the future growth of the expensive plants if your flower beds.
Another major positive aspect of mulch is the curb appeal addition to a property. Mulching flower beds will provides a better contrast between the grass, flowers, and trees then regular soil. Mulch as well comes in different color and textures, there is even a artificial one but it is not recommended.
