Salt -- Hay/straw

By The Old House Web
Hay from salty environments, such as coastal areas in New Jersey or Massachusetts, is often used as a mulch. Some contains trace minerals which are helpful for plants. It does not form a mat, but remains rigid and loose. Often recommended for strawberries at the rate of 2 inches.

Salt hay is difficult to find in central Illinois.
