Why Mulch? Regular mulching helps with weed suppression, moisture retention, erosion control and regulation of soil temperatures. Mulch that contains finer particles is more soil-conditioning and will provide a microbial food source.
Mulch is a material that is spread over the ground to enrich or insulate the soil. Think of it as a barrier that helps reduce weed growth, hold and conserve water and protect plant roots from climate shock.
Mulch can come in many different forms – ground, chipped or shredded.
Earthborn mulches also come in different grades (sizes) with varying levels of fine and coarse particle sizes.
