What are the Types of Mulch?
These are mulches that do not decay into nutritious materials for plants despite how long they remain on the soil. The most popular inorganic mulch purchased by garden owners include:
Rubber mulch is consists of either a waste tire or ground synthetic rubber. It’s is an excellent option for insulating the soil from heat. It’s also beneficial to the soil moisture since it prevents the water from evaporating through its porous surface.
Although this type of mulch is predominant in commercial farming, It’s still a valuable soil preserver worth mentioning. Every year, millions of farmers worldwide move problematic plastic from the environment and use them as mulch in farms.
Stones or Gravel
Stones and gravel are also used as mulch in places with a colder climate. The gravel’s ability to retain heat often helps to extend the growing season.
Keep in mind that using stones and gravel might also be detrimental if you live in an environment with intense heat. The rocks will raise the temperature of the soil by amplifying the heat they receive.
Unlike inorganic mulches, organic mulches are temporary because they decay over time. This factor, therefore, affects the type of organic mulch to purchase since most of them react differently to moisture from rain, sprinklers, or dew. The most common organic mulches include:
Leaves from trees that tend to drop in autumn or fall are a good source of organic mulch. While they decompose, their surfaces stick together, creating a protective cover that also permits water to seep down into the soil. Keep in mind that the thick layers of a massive heap of leaves can form a soggy mat during spring or winter, which might impede the growth of plants such as lawn grass. Also, instead of spending a few dollars to acquire stones and gravel to warm your soil during the winter, you can apply dry leaves to protect the plants from freezing.
Bark chips of different qualities come from the outer layer of timber trees and often serve as mulches in gardens. They come in various sizes ranging from large coarse blocks to thin shredded strands. Although the finer barks look attractive, they have a large exposed surface area that hastens the decay of the Mulch. This factor requires that gardeners lay the barks in layers that are two or three inches deep. Pro Tip: Bark Chips are available in different colors, and unlike most biodegradable substances, they do not demand soil nitrate to decay.
Carpets made of natural fiber are an excellent choice for halting weed growth due to their tightly packed surface. They absorb rain quickly and slowly release it into the soil to reduce the need to water.
