Create Mulch

Mulch is a layer of material laid on the soil surface to discourage weeds and prevent moisture loss. Organic mulches also improve soil fertility.

Types of mulch vary, the most natural is a looser, organic material which is laid on top of the soil about 8cm deep. You can include pretty much anything in your organic mulch, try chipped bark, garden compost, leaf mould or grass clippings.

Non-organic mulches include chippings, pebbles, sheet mulches, old carpet and even black polythene.

Organic mulches are recommended because they are natural, cheap and better for your plants. They also encourage worms and other creatures to churn nutrients into the soil. The bark is the most attractive mulch you can choose, it blends in better than grass clippings and polythene sheets.
