Mulch

Applying mulch is one of the best things you can do for your flower and plant beds, trees and vegetable garden. Mulch is a layer of organic or inorganic material that is spread out on top of the soil to protect against erosion and conserve moisture. Mulch helps plants maintain a more even soil temperature and prevents weed growth. Mulch also gives your garden beds a neat, landscaped appearance.

There are two basic types of mulch, organic and inorganic. Both organic and inorganic act as ground cover and offer the benefits of insulating and retaining soil. Organic mulches break down after a season or two and need to be reapplied. However, they actually enhance the soil by adding organic material. Inorganic mulches are more permanent, but they do not improve the soil structure. Other types of mulch vary according to their appearance and longevity.
