What is Mulch?

Definition of Mulch

Mulch is a layer of material that covers and protects the soil underneath. Mulch can prevent the growth of weeds, help the soil retain moisture, and prevent erosion. In extreme temperatures, mulch will protect the roots of plants and help the soil regulate its temperature. Mulch comes in a variety of natural materials from wood chips and shredded bark to the hulls of cocoa shells. Organic mulch will help improve the health of the soil as it decomposes over time. Inorganic mulch can be made of rubber, rocks, or sand. These options may last longer but will not contribute to the health of the soil. In many cases, mulch is simply used to improve the general appearance of an outdoor area or to create a pathway.
