Mulch reduces evaporation from the soil surface, keeps down weeds, and stabilizes soil temperature. Mulch also protects sloping ground from soil erosion and stops soil compaction caused by driving rain on the soil surface. Organic mulches feed the soil and provide ideal conditions for earthworms and other soil organisms necessary for healthy soil – plus it’s readily available, free, and easy to apply!
