Mulching, as practiced by gardeners, is merely an adaptation of the natural process by which plants are mulched with fallen leaves and other organic materials. This concise two-page publication describes the advantages of mulching your garden—such as weed control and conservation of soil moisture—as well as possible disadvantages. Includes a useful table of common mulching materials, recommended depth of application, and specific information on availability, durability, and nutrient value.
