A good job of mulching your garden usually offers these benefits:
Inhibits weed germination and growth. (Weeds are not only unsightly, but they also steal resources from desirable garden plants!)
Holds in soil moisture, protecting your plants from drying out quickly
Moderates soil-temperature fluctuations (This benefit is especially valuable during that turbulent-weather period in spring when you don't want your plants to be stressed.)
In cold-winter areas, protects plant roots from winter cold and helps prevent frost-heaving, in which plants are literally pushed out of the ground by the natural expansion and contraction of the soil as it cools off and heats up
In hot-summer areas, helps keep plant roots cooler
Depending on what you use, adds a bit of welcome nutrition to your garden as it breaks down
