Mulch is any material, organic or inorganic, that is placed on top of the soil in a garden or landscape. Mulch is an essential component of low-maintenance landscapes.
Aside from its decorative value, mulch offers many benefits to your soil and plants. Mulch reduces the amount of water lost through evaporation by shielding the soil from the sun’s drying rays. It keeps the soil cooler during the summer and acts as an insulator through the cold winter months. Organic matter is added to the soil as the mulch breaks down. Increasing the soil’s organic matter adds moisture and nutrients to the soil. Weed growth is suppressed by the use of mulch. Mulched plots are also less prone to erosion.
