Mulch and Soil. Not the most glamorous part of gardening but it is your garden’s lifeline so here are a few facts:

  • There are five factors that go into soil makeup: texture, structure, pH, organic mater and fertility
  • Typical soil found in the yard is about 90% mineral residue and only 10% decayed organic matter
  • Organic matter provides food for the beneficial microorganisms that release nutrients into the soil
  • Mulch protects soil by helping it retain moisture, reduce erosion, suppress weed growth and seed germination and provide nutrients
Knowing how much mulch to buy for your garden is always a bit of a guess, but you can make an educated one by using our coverage chart listed here.
