What is 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. Benefits of mulch include: 

  • Increased soil moisture
  • Suppressed weeds
  • Moderated soil temperature, insulating plant roots against extreme temperatures
  • Reduced sun damage to irrigation equipment covered by mulch
  • Increased aestetics as mulch fills open spaces and bare ground

What is compost?

Compost is decomposed organic matter often made up of 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:

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