Organic Mulch is made from all-natural materials such as shredded cedar or pine, shredded bark, twigs, or chopped leaves.
It contains no added chemicals or artificial fillers. Spread organic mulch around trees, shrubs, perennial plants, annuals, or vegetables. Organic mulch helps the soil retain water and provides nutrients for the plants. One advantage of organic mulch is that it does not require plastic sheeting underneath it. Instead, over time, Organic Mulch decomposes into rich fertile loam, improving the soil and feeding the plants in the process. Organic mulch also makes a garden more attractive by preventing weeds and grass from growing up around specimen plants and competing with perennials.
Check with your local nursery or with the growing instructions for your plant material to determine the optimal depth for mulching.

And lastly, the newspaper is great as a weed barrier. Newspaper, of course, needs to be paired with wheat straw or pine needles to keep the paper in place. And again the newspaper will decompose enough to turn to soil again without the mess with the pH levels. Compost is great for any garden to re-adding those nutrients that have already been fed on.
