The Benefits of Mulching By AT

Mulch is something that can be put on plants so the plants grow healthily.  Mulch is often made out of bark and used around plants and trees.  It keeps the soil moist.

Mulch is also put around plants to keep weeds away.  Plants need more water than weeds.

Mulch also keeps planting areas clean because it keeps the dirt away and the plants and their beautiful colours  can be seen more easily.

Mulch is a protective covering because it keeps the weeds away from the important plants that we need.

Mulching at our school helps our plants grow because school is closed for 6 weeks in the long holiday period and it keeps the ground  moist.  Water does not evaporate so quickly when plants have a good layer of mulch material.
