1. Soil protection
Whatever type of mulch you opt for, wood chips, flax mulch, bark... It acts as a protective layer for your soil and for the roots of your plants.
Once your plants are planted in the ground, the mulch chips deposited on the surface of the soil will strengthen the fragile soils in the face of erosion and compaction.
Mulching will create a natural cover to limit sun and wind damage that can cause your soil to dry out significantly.
It will act as an insulator by protecting your floor from both heat and extreme cold!
The provision of mulch on your soil will help prevent the formation of a crust. Indeed, without mulching and during heavy rains, your soil will become very compact and form cracks, which will make your soil fragile and impermeable, it will then require more attention and investment in terms of watering. .
Another benefit of mulching in the garden, the decomposition of organic mulch promotes the development of underground life by providing nutrients to spiders and earthworms. Did you know that earthworms are good for your soil? They create many galleries that aerate the soil and allow your plants to take root more easily!
