Organic Mulch And Its Affect On Soil

Soil is a medium that needs nurturing to make it a great environment to grow things and one way to boost the effectiveness of soil is to add a layer of mulch. Mulch is a thin layer that's added to soil to help improve its fertility and health, moisture, reduce weed growth and improve the soil's visual appeal.

 

Mulch, for the most part, is organic in nature, however, it varies and it's dependent on the materials that you use and that's what differentiates it from being temporary or permanent. Compost and manure mulches normally come about naturally in soil from the activity of organisms and worms. Commercial crops and gardening use mulch to improve soil productivity.

 

Organic Mulches are temporary and decay over time and the usefulness of organic mulch is dependent on the amount of dew or rain it encounters. On the other hand, some mulches can have a negative impact on how the growth of a plant takes place. For example, peat, straw, various wood products and sawdust can affect plant growth in a negative way because of the nitrogen to carbon ratio. The ratio can cause the fungi and bacteria that decompose various materials to remove nitrogen from the soil and the nitrogen is needed for growth. However, there is a debate among researchers that the ratio imbalance may not have any practical impact on the soil at all, paired with a gardener's experience. Another situation that can negatively affect the soil is when an Organic Mulch gets matted upon application and forms a barrier that can block the flow of air and water between the atmosphere and soil. In addition, if the Organic Mulch is applied vertically, it can actively wick water from the soil to the surface and dry out the soil out. On a side note, you must take great care when dealing with wood Organic Mulch, because it may have feed termites and if it's placed too close to your house or building, then the structure may be harmed by those insects. Thus, many manufacturers suggest that when applying Organic Mulch with wood, to put it several inches away from structures.
