What is mulching?
Mulching is the process of applying a layer of material (can be straw, bark chips or organic materials, and can also be a plastic sheeting), to the surface of soil. Mulch is applied to the actual soil surface or can be applied around trees, in flower beds, or in vegetable crop production areas. Manure mulches or compost mulches absorbed naturally through the soil by the activity of worms and other living organisms. When used correctly, mulching can significantly improve your soil. Usually applied at least two inches deep, mulch is used at various times throughout the year, for different purposes. For instance, near the beginning of the growing season, mulch applications help warm soil by retaining the heat that is lost at night. Then later in the season, mulch preserves soil moisture and temperature, and prevents weed growth.
Benefits of mulching

Lawn aeration is the process of piercing small holes in the soil. You’re probably thinking, “Holes? You’ll put holes in my lawn?!” We know it sounds crazy, but yes! The small holes allow important nutrients, air, and water to deeply penetrate the grass roots. The main reason you want to aerate your lawn is to prevent soil compaction. Soil compaction occurs when the soil particles have been greatly pressed together. When soil has heavily compacted, it is difficult for important nutrients to reach the roots. If your lawn gets heavy use (think pets and kids running on it often), your soil is probably compacted, and is a great candidate for lawn aeration.
