TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Mulches for Landscaping

Mulches improve soil structure in several ways. As organic mulches decompose, they provide organic matter that prompts soil particles to aggregate. Large aggregates increase aeration and improve moisture conditions in the soil. These conditions, in turn, encourage additional root development and biological activity, further enhancing soil structure.

Mulched soils are cultivated less frequently than bare soils. It is now known that soil structure is improved by not cultivating, but this relationship was not always understood.

At one time, it was a common practice to cultivate the surface of soil to form a dry "dust mulch." The theory was that the dust layer would obstruct the upward capillary movement of subsoil water and thus reduce soil water losses.

Research over the past 40 years has shown that dust mulches conserve moisture in soils by inhibiting weed growth. But because they are susceptible to wind erosion, dust mulches actually have a negative effect on soil structure.
