There are many benefits of mulching, including fewer weeds and less erosion, but the most important advantages to mulching in our area are more moderated soil temperatures and conserved soil moisture. Mulch can also decrease the incidence of soil-borne diseases by preventing soil-borne pathogens from splashing onto leaves when it rains.
Organic mulches are preferred over inorganic mulches because they break down and release nutrients back to the soil, which plants can then take up. They can also improve soil structure by adding organic matter. Because organic mulches break down, they need to be replenished periodically (usually about once a year).
Triple Shredded Hardwood Bark
Processed a third time, triple-hammered hardwood mulch is finer than double-hammered mulch, as the chunks are broken down even further, almost to a sawdust consistency. … This hardwood mulch adds vital nutrients, such as nitrogen, as it breaks down and blends in with the soil.
Pine Bark Mulch
Pine bark mulch, as the name suggests, is made from the shredded bark of pine trees. It tends to last longer than most organic mulches, whether finely shredded or in nugget form. The natural red-dark brown color of pine bark mulch also lasts longer than other wood mulches, which tends to fade to gray after a year.
