A Living Mulch – Allowing Plants to spread as Nature intended

We humans, including myself, were taught to maintain our gardens unnaturally by growing plants spaced apart ,separated by wood mulch around each plant.  If we want a natured based, environmentally friendly garden we must allow plants to spread and fill in all the bare areas of a garden as a living mulch.  This is the way nature has been gardening for thousands of years!
