Abstract
Mulch is used in the home garden to control weeds, conserve moisture, and reduce irrigation. Use of mulches also reduces soil temperature; prevents soil erosion; prevents vegetables from contacting the soil; which keeps them clean; prevents soil rot disease; allows harvest more quickly after rain or irrigation; and adds organic matter when mixed with the soil.
