Mulches and Wood Chips


Mulch is a covering placed around plants (or covering the ground in lieu of plants), to prevent the growth of weeds. If placed around plants, a mulch provides additional benefits, including the diminution of erosion and water loss, and the regulation of soil temperature. In addition, upon decomposition, mulches serve as soil amendments.

Mulch selection is usually based on appearance, as well as on all the practical considerations mentioned above.

Mulching with wood chips conserves soil moisture, reduces weeds, and cools the soil. All of these benefits help to make your plants healthier.

Mulch can help your plants grow faster with fewer insect and disease problems.

Another use for wood chips is to cover garden and yard pathways. Wood chips add a natural element to the landscape.
