Mulching is one of plant life's best-kept secrets which more are starting to recognize and put into practice.
Soil that is exposed to the elements is constantly having the nutrients and microbiological environment washed away and leeched out. Without putting in countless hours of labour every year, the soil will eventually be rendered barren if left exposed to the elements.
Mulching has innumerable benefits beyond preventing this from happening. In all actuality, mulching is just an emulation of what natural biospheres do. Have you ever noticed that no one needs to "tend" to the forest as we do with our plants and gardens?
Falling leaves, needles, branches, trees, and other miscellaneous debris end up creating a natural "carpet" of a protective layer on the forest floor. The wood and leaves, over time, break down into a fresh layer of nutrient-rich soil and provide nutrients while doing so.
This protective layer on the forest floor serves many services that farmers and gardeners seem to have missed.
