Mulch plays a vital role in your garden and the benefits certainly make it worth the effort.
The benefits of mulching reach well below the soil surface. Not only does it give your garden an instant facelift, but it also provides a blanket for your plants. Mulching will stop your soil from drying out, keeping the moisture in and can reduce watering by up to 60 percent. It keeps them cool in summer and warm in winter, suppresses weeds and provides nutrients as it breaks down improving the structure and increasing biological activity in the soil.
