Types of Mulch

Countless varieties of mulch are available. From wood chips and bark to old tire scraps, there are many different options to choose from. The following are some of the more popular mulch varieties for farming and gardening use.

  • Black Plastic – Black plastic offers insulation and protection from weeds. Since this material prevents water absorption into the soil below, black plastic should only be used when there is proper drainage. This treatment is typically covered with a more decorative material for appearance reasons.
  • Fertilizers – Fertilizers are often composed of animal waste, decaying plant matter, and natural minerals. Man-made fertilizers are also available. Fertilizers provide many nutrients to plants, but it can be difficult to compost the materials properly.
  • Groundcover – Groundcover is also sometimes referred to as living mulch. Plants, other than the main crop, are planted to prevent weed growth. Groundcover must be non-threatening to the main crop. Sometimes they offer additional benefits like regulation of nitrogen and soil nutrients.
  • Landscape Fabric – Landscape fabric helps prevent weed growth. Unlike black plastic, landscape fabric allows for water drainage and air circulation. Landscape fabric should be covered with decoration coverage like wood chips to prevent weeds from growing on top of the material.
  • Organic Mulch – Organic mulch offers numerous benefits to soil and growing plants. Benefits vary depending on the material involved. Common organic mulches are wood chips and bark, pine needles, straw, and even household kitchen waste like eggshells and food scraps. Organic mulch can be pricey, but some choose to compost it themselves for their gardens.
  • Rocks – Rocks and gravel subdue weeds. Given the variety of rocks available, a landscape’s appearance can be greatly improved by their presence. However, since rocks are difficult to transport, they are best to use around more permanent plants and bushes.
