Mulching by JW

What is mulch? Mulch is a mixture of bark off trees and inorganic material used to put around plants.

Mulch kills grass or weeds.  The other good thing about it is that it keeps the soil moist.  It also stops water evaporating around the plants.

How to use mulch: To use mulch you need to put it on the grass, but do not spread it too much because the grass shoot out and it will grow back.

Another benefit of mulching is that the plants area is clean for a long time.  All types of weeds will die around the plant.

Mulching can also help plants to grow and it keeps weeds from taking water and nutrients from the plants.

Mulch also affects the weeds, mulch kills the and protects the good plants.  The grass dies, plants grow healthier, and most importantly mulch is usually organic material.

So that's why mulching at home and at school is so beneficial for plants.  Mulch can be bark chips, organic materials such as grass clippings and leaves, inorganic materials such as weed matting.  Hay is very easy and clean to use as mulch.
