Mulch is an important part of any home landscaping plan. If you are new to mulching, there are a few things you need to determine before you begin to install it in your yard.
Mulch comes in two primary options -- organic or mineral. Organic mulch can be as simple as compost, or it may be made of wood chips such as from eucalyptus. These organic mulches are used in perennial and annual beds alike, but they do need to be refreshed annually because they decompose.
