With a black mulch layer covering your garden and a black rubber door seal in the background, your garden will look a bit like a black-and-white movie.
But the rubber seal is actually a natural seal of sorts.
It comes from the leaves and stems of an edible plant.
When the plant sheds its leaves, the leaves break off and release carbon dioxide and water into the soil.
When these carbon dioxide molecules are released, they can make the soil less acidic.
That, in turn, makes it easier for the soil to absorb water.
When your mulch is black, the rubber door seals and your soil does not have this natural barrier to the water.
So, if you have mulch that is too hard, it may not allow the water to drain out, and it may block the entrance of your garden.
Here are some tips to help you get rid of the black rubber mulchan seal: Clean your mulches every few weeks to remove the black seal.
