Top Dress Your Garden Beds with Wood Chip Mulch

Other than educating yourself, the single best tip we can offer other gardeners is this: top-dress your garden beds with about 6″ of wood chip mulch twice per year. Do not till this mulch in to your soil: let your soil microorganisms do the work for you. We usually mulch our garden late winter/early spring and again in the late summer/early fall.

Here are some of the scientifically-proven benefits of mulching:

  • Improved soil moisture
  • Reduced soil erosion and compaction
  • Maintain optimal soil temperatures (up to 50F in some extreme environments!)
  • Increased soil nutrition
  • Reduced salt and pesticide contamination
  • Increased binding of heavy metals
  • Improved plant establishment and growth by: a) Improving seed germination and seedling survival, b) enhancing root establishment and transplant survival, c) increasing overall plant growth performance;
  • Reduced diseases and pathogens
  • Reduced weeds
  • Reduce watershed pollution
  • Reduced pesticide needs
  • Aesthetic improvement (mulched beds are much more attractive than beds of plowed, exposed soil)
  • Substantial cost savings (less inputs, higher plant survival rates, less plant maintenance, larger crop yields, etc = big financial savings)
