Using our large, composted pine bark chip mulch is a good gardening habit and well worth the effort.  Apart from making the beds look neat and attractive, it offers several useful benefits such as:

–       It holds in soil moisture and protects the plants from drying out quickly.

–       It insulates the soil, keeping it warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

–       It inhibits certain plant diseases.

–       It suppresses the growth of weeds.
