Q: Pro's/Con's to mulching or laying wood chips?
Aside from being more attractive, what are the pro's and con's of laying much in planting beds?
Cosmetically, chips are deffinately more atrractive then dirt. Common Pro's include; most mulch contains nutrients that help the soil on which it lies stay fertile and help germination. Also it does compress a lot of weeds. Con's include; clean-up and maintenace are diffucilt especially if you have common drop foliage. Raking picks up a lot of the mulch as your trying to get the leaves and dead buds. And if you have drip line installed you need to be even more careful you don't rip any of the lines out while grooming.
