Strawberry field with straw and newspaper covering the soil

Over the last weeks I prepared my strawberry field. I turned the earth upside down, removed hundreds of stones (ok 11), and set a border. In order to grow strawberry easily I first put newspaper on the ground and covered that with organic straw. Why easily?
