Soil and Mulch

mirgroSoil and mulch are essential to gardening success. Properly preparing your garden with the correct soil and compost before planting will give your garden the proper nutrients it needs to get started and thrive. Adding mulch is not a new concept, but it is a beneficial one.

 

For as long as trees have grown in forests, leaves and needles have fallen to the ground, matted together, and formed a natural protective layer over the soil. 



Many different natural and synthetic mulches are available today, but all perform at least three basic functions:

  • Reduces evaporation which lessens the need to water as often.
  • Suppress weeds. Weeds that do grow are easier to pull.
  • Protect against temperature extremes. Keeps soil cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

 

There are many types of soil available from the basic topsoil to ones formulated especially for container gardens. Bagged soils are usually a combination of soil, peat and vermiculite or pearlite. Some also contain moisture retention crystals and fertilizers.
