What is mulching and what are the benefits?

To begin with, it can really help to promote the health of both the trees and shrubs in your gardens and landscape. Mulch is placed over the surface of the soil and as it breaks down and biodegrades, nutrients are fed into the soil, which are then absorbed by the root systems of the plants and trees. Mulching is like natural fertilizing.

When the soil is covered in mulch, it also helps the soil to retain more moisture as it is protected from the sun and the elements like the wind. This means your trees and shrubs require less watering to remain hydrated.

Another benefit of mulching is it stunts the growth and proliferation of those dreaded and unsightly garden weeds.
