If you have a green thumb, then you should start gardening with straw. Using straw adds so many benefits to your garden, that you may not have even known about.

It reduces weeds

Say goodbye to your days of picking weeds. When you use straw on your garden bed, it will block out the sun, which prevents the weeds underneath from growing. If you remove the weeds from your garden and then put down straw, the weeds won’t be able to grow. Just make sure you don’t lay straw on your seedlings.

It increases nutrients

As the straw from your garden begins to decompose, it will decompose slower than other organic material. As the straw decomposes, it will release its nutrients into your plants.

It reduces diseases

If you put straw on the base of your tomato plants, it will prevent the spread of diseases found in the soil. Straw will stop the water from splashing up from the soil, so contaminated water won’t affect your crops.
