Mulch protects plant roots from heat, cold or drought or to keep fruit clean.

Benefits of Mulching

  • A mulch layer on the soil surface reduces the washing away of soil particles by rushing water. Also, mulches prevent raindrops from splashing on the soil surface.
  • A layer of mulch on the soil surface allows the soil to soak up more water.
  • Mulch reduces the rate of water loss from the soil.
  • A 3-inch layer of mulch on the soil surface dries much faster than the soil below it. Thus it prevents water from moving into the air.
  • Mulches modify soil temperature in home gardens. Applied in late fall, winter mulch insulates plant roots, crowns and stems of winter crops from extremely low temperatures.
  • Proper mulching in summer months keeps the soil cooler. Soil covered by dark organic mulch in early spring warms faster than bare soil, allowing for earlier planting.
  • Mulches enrich the soil as they decay and provide a better environment for plant growth.
  • Soils high in organic matter are easier to till and better suited to vegetable gardening. Adding organic material makes soils more crumbly, especially clay soils that pack and crust.
  • Mulches help plants by gradually increasing soil fertility.
  • Most mulches provide excellent weed control.
  • A well-mulched garden can yield up to 50% more than an un-mulched garden.
