In Texas, there is rarely a cold front. This is super great for all of the lawn care related things because it opens up so much more time and ability to get things done. This means there isn’t necessarily a specific time that you are restricted from doing things for your plants.
Mulching is a great option for lawn care in the fall there is a myriad of benefits that can come from it, and there are endless reasons to do it now rather than to wait for the spring.
Some of these reasons include the following:
While most states get a nice bit of weather in the traditional spring months, in Texas, it’s hot. And on top of that, allergies are going to be flaring up left and right. Since it doesn’t rain as much as it does in other states during this time, the humidity will be pretty high. So while many people think that gardening is pretty much a summertime and springtime task only, it’s not necessarily true. Additionally, mulching your entire landscaping takes days. That means you’ll be spending time in the heat and risking skin damage.
It is actually pretty rare to have a traditional fall season in Texas. If it does happen, it’s likely much later than other states will experience it. However, not everyone wants to spend all day in the blistering sun, so enjoying some gardening time in November will give you a chance to be outdoors while not subjecting yourself to overheating. You’ll be able to provide your trees, gardens, and shrubs with a slew of nutrients while you are doing it.
That brings us to the reason we do any type of gardening in the first place – the benefits to our plants. Whether you have a garden or a yard full of trees and shrubs, they are going to need to be protected and well-fed. Mulching isn’t just to keep your greenery safe from cold weather, it can also keep it safe from the overly warm weather as well. By choosing to install mulch on top of your soil, you will be protecting the roots of your trees and shrubs. And since Texas is pretty hot year-round, there is a higher chance of insect infestation and the diseases that come with that.
