Summary: Adding a mulch around plants slows water evaporation, saving water and giving plants a protective covering that will keep them moist even in the hotest weather. There is enormous water savings when all of your plants have a layer of mulch.

Author's statement:
Anything that covers the ground and blocks light can act as a
mulch. This includes inorganic material such as plastic sheeting,
polypropylene or polyester landscape fabrics, and old carpet.
Organic mulches range from compost, leaves, straw, and hay, to
newspaper, wood chips, bark, and sawdust.
