Without a doubt, mulching is the best possible way to protect some of the plants around your home during the cold weather months of winter time. If you live in an area that has a high percentage of snowfall, then you are in luck. The reason for this is that snow is perhaps one of the best possible "natural" mulches available. However if you live in an area that doesn't see a whole lot of snow, or you want to be extra careful about some of your plants and trees, then you will need to do a little bit of cold weather mulching.
Cold weather mulching isn't particularly difficult to understand, though it can be a bit tedious to implement. To make the whole process as easy as possible, simply follow these guidelines. By following them carefully, you will not only have the correct mulch for your tree, garden, or shrub, you will also have it applied in time and properly. It really couldn't be easier.
