Benefits of Organic Mulch
Organic mulch is made from any previously living material or a material that decomposes naturally. These include grass clippings, compost, leaves, bark chips, straw, sawdust, or grape pomace. Inorganic mulches, on the other hand, are made of plastic sheeting, rubber chips, rocks, or non-woven Geotextiles.
Why choose organic mulch? It can suppress weeds and offer other important benefits, such as the following:
- Protects the soil from many plant pests and undesirable bacteria
- Conserves moisture
- Insulates the soil, keeping it warmer during colder months and cooler during warmer months
- Allows nutrients to reach plant roots
- Nurtures beneficial bacteria, insects, worms, and fungi
