Sedges is a variety of plants that have distinctive appearance and durability. They can adapt to various site conditions and offer a range of textures and colors that add depth to the overall design of your garden. Until now, the mound has become one of the most useful and rarely used garden plants according to Shannon Currey of Hoffman Nursery. Although many garden plants are more beautiful than reeds, few are more functional. Currey said that the mound was a “hard-working plant” from the garden because it was active throughout the year. When used as mulch and not mulch, sedge not only suppresses weed growth but also contributes organic matter to the soil. This provides shelter and food for beneficial insects and birds. And that looks really cool when I do all that.
