Advantages of Mulching

Mulch installation is one of the best things you can do for your garden. This consist of placing a protective barrier (mulch) around your plants and over your bare soil. This protective barrier can be made up of a variety of decomposing organic materials, including bark or wood chips (from various tree species) and pine needles on some southern states or non-decomposing, non-organic materials such as black plastic, landscaping fabric, recycled tires, pebbles, and river rock.
