There are several types of mulches, people use different colors for cosmetic purposes to beautify their landscape or match with their exterior color of house or contrast. All mulches serve the same purpose. Few mulch products such as pine bark mulch have acidic PH which can be used for Azalea or the plants that needs more acidic PH.
Mulching trees and shrubs is a good method to reduce landscape maintenance and keep plants healthy. Mulch helps conserve moisture --- 10 to 25 percent reduction in soil moisture loss from evaporation. Mulch helps keep the soil well aerated by reducing soil compaction that results when raindrops hit the soil. Mulches also reduce water runoff and soil erosion. Mulches prevent soil and possible fungi from splashing on the foliage ---- thus reducing the likelihood of soil-borne diseases. Mulches help maintain a more uniform soil temperature (warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer) and promote the growth of soil microorganisms and earth worms.
Mulches eliminate mowing around trees and shrubs and provide a physical barrier that prevents damage from lawn mowers and weed trimmers. A 2- to 4-inch layer (after settling) is adequate to prevent most weed seeds from germinating. It should be applied to a weed-free soil surface. Simply covering perennial weeds such as Bermuda grass or nut sedge will not prevent their growth.
The area should include as much of the root zone as possible. For beds the entire area to be covered. For individual plants, such as trees, the area should extend at least 3 to 6 feet out from the base of the plant. It is advisable to pull the mulch 1 to 2 inches from the base of plants to prevent bark decay.
The depth depends on the type of material used and the drainage and moisture holding capacity of the soil. Sandy soils dry out quickly and often benefit from a slightly deeper mulch layer (3 to 4 inches). A site that stays moist may not benefit from mulching at all. It can be applied any time of the year. However, the best time is late spring after the soil has warmed. Early spring application will delay soil warming and possibly plant growth.
