Mulching can make all the difference between a garden that is a joy to work and watch and one that is tedious and untidy.
Among mulch’s greatest attributes is its ability to help control weeds.
Mulch also helps conserve soil moisture by 50 percent or more by covering the soil to slow down evaporation. UK soil scientists have found that a mulch on the soil surface can conserve about six inches of soil water during growing season. Most of the water conserved will reduce and/or delay plant water stress.
