Whether you're dressing up the front walkway or reinforcing the garden plots in time for fall, a lush bed of mulch can take topsoil to the next level—the top one. When laid properly, the rich complexion helps to reduce soil erosion, suppress weed growth, and retain moisture. When applied in the summertime in temperate climate zones, such as the Midwest, mulch also helps the soil maintain high temperatures further into the fall, allowing preexisting plant life to prolong its beauteous lifespan.

With the sunrise, Midwest Balloon Rides’ hot air balloons slowly rise into the morning sky for sprawling views of the Indiana landscape.
