in T heir Gardens
1. It is an organic material that contributes to the humus content
of the soil.
2. It is clean, odorless and pleasant to work with.
3. It is economical to use. One bale will spread approximately
three hundred square feet, one inch deep.
4. It is a good winter mulch, as it will insulate the soil against
frequent freezing and thawing effects which tend to damage
the perennial plants by breaking the roots.
