Mulching is a versatile process of laying down your chosen material over your chosen patch of soil. This process is particularly used to help fertilize, retain moisture, maintain soil temperature, and protect your soil from certain environmental hazards. There are several types of mulch, including, grass clippings, shredded leaves, hay, cocoa hulls, stone, wood chips and bark to name a few. Most of these natural materials help with the soil nutrition, as they break down over time. On the other hand, inorganic mulches are made from human-made or non-natural materials, such as rocks, gravel, plastic sheeting, non-woven geotextiles, and rubber chips.
In general, different mulches are better for certain uses. Organic mulches deliver more nutrients to the soil, while inorganic mulches act as a barrier to protect the plant from weeds. Mulch also helps plants stay healthy and keep them growing strong by protecting the soil from weed seeds germination, traffic induced erosion, wind water, and compaction that directly contributes to root stress and poor plant health. By adding only a couple inches of mulch, you are providing a protective barrier over your bare soil, which acts as a natural roof and insulation that keeps the ground cool on hot days, and warm on cold ones by regulating the traumatic day-night and freeze-thaw cycles experienced by the plant.

Bark mulch is made out of tree bark that is shredded into fine, medium, and large pieces. Most of these mulches are a combination of various trees, such as pine, cypress, oak, cedar, hemlock, and etc. Rock mulch is a type of decorative rock or gravel ranging in sizes from pea-size to golf ball size, often sourced from river beds. These types of mulch do not decay and do not require periodic replacement like bark mulch does. However, these types of mulch tend to be more expensive compared to bark mulch. Bark mulch is often used in garden beds and flowerbeds to protect these ornamental plants. On the other hand, rock or stone mulch is generally used along driveways, walkways, and buildings.
Both types of mulches help deter the growth and spread of weeds. However, when it comes to the installation or removal process, rock mulches are more difficult to to work with considering its weight. When planning your home’s landscaping, it is important to consider whether to use an organic or inorganic mulch for your ground cover. Before you make a decision, make sure to weigh the pros and cons of each option, and decide on which one fits your needs the most.
