WHAT IS THE REASON FOR MULCHING WHEN PLANTING?

We do not have very much rainfall and do not have a lot of decomposed, organic product in our soil.  To get a nice, organic environment for the plants to thrive in, we need to add composted mulch to the soils and then putting mulches on the top of the soil.  This is a great way to cool down the soil and hold moisture in the soil so it does not dry out so much.  Our soil is very expansive.  Getting organic material in the soil and on top of the soil keeps it from shrinking and contracting, drying out, splitting and cracking.  It also acts like insulation keeps it warmer and cooler in the Winter and Summer.
