What is mulch?

Mulch is made up of organic material like chipped wood and tree bark and is used to cover soil. A three-inch layer of mulch spread over bare soil will enhance the health of your garden. Benefits of mulch include the following: 

  • Increased soil moisture
  • Weed suppression
  • Moderated soil temperature, insulating plant roots against extreme temperatures
  • Reduced sun damage to irrigation equipment covered by mulch
  • Improved aesthetics

What is compost?

Compost is decomposed organic matter, often derived from urban plant debris and food waste. Compost is much finer in texture than mulch and can be applied topically, added to a plant's root ball, or added under mulch to amend soil. Benefits of compost include the following:

  • Increased plant growth
  • Reduced need for chemical fertilizers
  • Improved soil structure through the addition of beneficial bacteria and fungi
  • Improved soil water retention
