Enhance Perennial Growth in Dry Soils

Mulch and gravel help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature, supporting plant roots in dry conditions. Mulch also prevents weed growth and adds nutrients to the soil.

Choosing the Right Mulch

Organic mulches like wood chips and straw break down over time, enriching the soil. Inorganic mulches like gravel provide long-lasting weed control and retain moisture effectively.

Applying Mulch and Gravel

Spread mulch 2-4 inches deep around plants, leaving space around stems. For gravel, apply a 2-3 inch layer for optimal moisture retention and weed suppression in dry soil conditions.
