Mulching is a gardening technique that is quite beneficial for plants as long as it is properly executed. This practice involves covering the soil with “mulches”, which include dried or decaying leaves, wood chips or bark, and organic materials, just to mention a few.
The main purpose of mulching is to improve the condition of the soil while preserving its moisture. And most importantly, it hinders the growth of weeds. It deprives them of sunlight too.
