When talking about mulch, it is common to associate mulching landscapes with spring. However, the fall is an excellent time to refresh your mulch in preparation for the colder weather ahead. Not only can mulching help save time in the spring, but it can also help protect your plants against cold temperatures, retain soil moisture, and suppress weeds.
In many areas, fall is a time of shifts in temperature and drier air than in the summer growing season. In Florida, depending on the region you are in, you can see drastic changes in temperature (North Florida) to less drastic shifts in temperature change (South Florida). If you have annuals or perennials, applying a nice, thick layer of mulch is highly recommended for colder areas of Florida if you want them to remain healthy in the fall and sustain the winter.
