Mulching is something good for the plants. It's good because it protects the plants that need a lot of protection, such as native plants.
The first benefit to mulching is that it keeps all of the weeds away. That is a good thing because it kills the weeds, and the weeds take all of the food, water and nutrients away from the plants.
The second benefit is that it keeps the soil moist and this is a good thing because water and moist soil is just what the plants need.
The third benefit is that it keeps the plant area clean from grass and dirt. This is good because it looks nice.
The result is super healthy plants.
Our school has been mulching around the native plants.
