Mulching a garden provides several benefits, including:

  1. Moisture retention: Mulch helps retain moisture in the soil, which reduces the need for watering and helps plants stay hydrated.
  2. Weed suppression: Mulch can suppress the growth of weeds by blocking light from reaching weed seeds and preventing them from germinating.
  3. Temperature regulation: Mulch helps regulate soil temperature by insulating the soil from heat in the summer and cold in the winter.
  4. Soil improvement: As mulch breaks down over time, it adds organic matter to the soil, which improves soil structure and fertility.
  5. Erosion control: Mulch helps prevent erosion by reducing the impact of rain on soil, and by providing a physical barrier that keeps soil in place.
  6. Pest control: Some types of mulch, such as cedar bark or pine needles, can help repel certain pests, like slugs or snails.

Overall, mulching is a simple and effective way to improve the health and productivity of a garden, while reducing the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking its best.
