Shredded leaves, grass clippings, hay, straw, pine needles and other yard materials can be used as mulch. Place mulch around flowers, vegetables, bushes and trees.

Mulch provides the following benefits:
  • Reduces the need for watering and weeding
  • Holds moisture in the soil
  • Keeps soil warmer during the winter
  • Helps control insects and diseases
  • As natural mulch decomposes, it provides nutrients to plants and soil
