The easiest way to enrich soil fertility is to imitate the natural process of leaves, wood, and other organic plant matter building up on the ground, where it covers the soil and essentially composts in place. This process is called organic mulching, and you can start today by sprinkling some yard waste around the bases of your plants. It will balance out your soil temperature, provide habitat for beneficial microbes & worms, keep in moisture, and, of course, return nutrients to the earth.
DIY organic mulching is probably the easiest way to enrich soil fertility. You’re basically composting in place, right around the plants. We do this around all our noni trees, and get great results.
- Maintains more constant soil temperature
- Provides habitat for insects, microbes and beneficial worms
- Keeps moisture from evaporating
- Returns nutrients to the soil
In essence, organic mulching imitates the natural cycle of leaves, wood, and other plant matter building up on the ground to cover the soil.
How to Get Started:
Organic mulch can be made of plant material (leaves, grass clippings, wood chips) or shredded paper and cardboard (tape and staples removed of course). By returning these materials to the soil, we are investing in our land, and engaging in the natural growing cycles of the earth. Once you have a decent amount, you can cover your soil.
You can either put your organic mulch all around individual plants/trees, or you can evenly cover your soil if prepping a garden bed.
DIY organic mulching is a beneficial sustainable farming practice. It’s also very easy to implement. If you do nothing else in the garden or around your fruit trees- MULCH and watch the good things happen!
