What are the benefits of mulch?

Mulch is made up of organic material like shredded or chipped tree bark. A three-inch layer of mulch spread over bare soil will enhance the health of your garden in many ways, including:

  • Retention of soil moisture.
  • Moderation of soil temperature, insulating plant roots against extreme temperatures.
  • Suppression of water-stealing weeds.
  • Protection of drip irrigation equipment from sun damage.
  • Improvement of soil texture as the mulch breaks down.
  • Nourishment of beneficial soil organisms by the organic matter.
  • Beautification of your garden, filling open spaces and bare ground.
