5 reasons why you need mulching in a single row garden.
- Reduces the amount of water that evaporates from soil, greatly reducing the need to water
Improves the quality of your soil by breaking up clay and allowing better water and air movement through the soil Provides nutrients to sandy soil and improves its ability to hold water
- Acts as an insulating layer on top of soil, keeping it cooler in the summer
Mulch keeps weeds down, and the weeds that do grow are much easier to pull
Out of those 5 reasons to use a mulch in a row back yard garden, SFG only needs 2 of them. Why? Because in a SFG, you already automatically have the other 3 without doing anything, It’s all built in to the SFG System, at no additional work, no tools, no expense.
