What is Mulch?
Have you ever wondered what Mulch is, and why it is important for healthy landscaping? Organic mulch involves materials that are able to decompose into your soil. Biodegradable mulches break down gradually to discharge nutrients into the soil and support its structure. Layers will need replacing when the material has fully decomposed. The best organic materials are chopped leaves, garden compost, pine needles, straw, sawdust, shredded bark, rotted manure, and wood chips.
Using organic mulch help kill weeds but also enhances soil fertility once all the materials decompose. Mulching is used to enhance the soil around bushes and plants. Not only this, but the amount of time watering and weeding is also reduced. Mulches help protect plant roots during the winter and the soil retains moisture preventing growing weeds in the summer.
Organic mulch will decompose and have to be replaced, but in the process, it will also improve your soil’s fertility and its organic content. The dryer and woodier the mulch, the slower it will decompose and the fewer nutrients it will give to the soil.
