Mulch helps eliminate or lessen the amount of weed growth, retains soil moisture, and insulates plants. There are various types to choose from, though they generally fall into two categories: organic and non-organic.

As for pruning, this typically involves the cutting away of branches on a plant, normally a tree or shrub, in order to achieve an end goal. This goal can be things like shaping a plant, encouraging new growth or increasing fruit production. How and when to prune plants is normally dependent upon the type of plant you are wanting to prune.
