HomeWhat is the difference between compost and mulch?

Compost is usually a decomposed organic matter that is most often used as a soil amendment or as a fertilizer. Mulch is used as a protective layer over soil to act as a barrier for weed growth and seed germination. Mulching also helps trap moisture in the soil, limits erosion, and can provide nutrients for the soil and plant roots.
