The multiple benefits of organic mulches in landscape environments are well documented (3,7). The few problems associated with mulch use can be minimized or avoided with proper management. For example, development of nitrogen deficiency can be reduced by the addition of small amounts of nitrogen fertilizer to the mulch. Rates of 2 to 3 Ib nitrogen per 100 ft2 of mulch are recommended (2,4). Another problem, particularly in the United States West with its dry summer months, is the fire potential… 
The Ease of Ignition of 13 Landscape Mulches
The ease of ignition of 13 commonly used landscape mulches was evaluated. Mulches have different ignition potentials based on several factors, including the length of exposure to heat and to the
Effects of Mulching on Soil Properties and Growth of Tea Olive (Osmanthus fragrans)
TLDR
Considering the effect of mulching on soil properties and plant growth and physiology, round gravel and wood chips appear to be a better choice than manila turf grass in ‘Rixianggui’ nurseries.
Valorization of digestates from urban or centralized biogas plants: a critical review
Abstract Direct landspreading of anaerobic digestates is the most common digestate management strategy. Nevertheless, digestate post-treatment can be unavoidable, especially for environmental
MULCH FLAMMABILITY
Introduction Regardless of how horrible and devastating wildland fires are portrayed by the media, they are a natural disturbance that many native ecosystems depend on for regeneration. As the
