Mulch Greatly Benefits Soil

Mulch is very good for your soil. Mulch conserves soil moisture, controls weeds, maintains the physical structure of the soil, prevents soil erosion and moderates the soil's temperature.

Mulch can be purchased in various forms and can be organic or inorganic. Organic mulches can include pine needles, leaves, and bark chips. Inorganic mulches can include stones, marble, or plastics.

When deciding which mulch to use, you should keep in mind that inorganic mulches do not contribute any nutrients to the soil.
