Why is mulch good for your garden?
Not only does mulch make your garden bed look more attractive it also serves several other functions. Mulch suppresses weed growth, and it helps retain moisture in the soil which leads to reduced time spent on plant watering. It also keeps soil cool and prevents frost in the winter. It can improve your soil structure and drainage.
There are many different types of mulches both organic and inorganic. Organic mulch consists of formerly living materials such as wood chips, shredded bark, grass cuttings, straw, or chopped leaves. A benefit to using organic mulch is when it starts to break down, it provides nutrients for your garden. Inorganic mulch consists of things like rocks, plastic sheets, or rubber chips.
