Mulch for your garden beds
227
A 2-4" layer of shredded hardwood bark mulch will provide additional moisture and a cooling effect for plant material during the heat of the summer.  While improving the general appearance of planting beds, mulch also reduces weed growth.  As the shredded hardwood bark mulch decomposes, nutrients and organic matter are incorporated into the soil, improving soil quality.  Amended compost improves the planting beds aesthetic value and also increases the nutrient and microorganism levels.  Plants love compost since nitrogen is the key element for a plant's leaf growth and development.
