Now, imagine a simpler world where weeds are inhibited from taking root in the first place and from thriving if they do manage to take hold. Fortunately, there is a way to actually accomplish this seemingly impossible task – use mulch.
Indeed, mulch has some amazing weed fighting capabilities and it also improves the look of any landscape where it is applied. Primarily, mulch acts as a physical barrier to many varieties of unwanted seeds. Instead of landing in nice moist soil, the seeds land on top of the mulch and are destroyed by the heat of the sun. Secondly, mulch helps retain moisture so that your own plants are healthy and weeds are at a disadvantage when strong plants are around.
