Mulches & Woodchip

The benefits of using mulch on your garden;

 

  • Mulching reduces evaporation so you need to use less water and waterless.
  • Mulching keeps the soil temperatures cooler. This enables many plants that need cooler roots to thrive while still being in sunlight to flower.
  • Mulch attracts earthworms. This adds to the health of the soil through aeration and nutrient’s in the form of worm casts.
  • Mulching helps to maintain good soil structure by allowing plants to have maximum access to moisture and oxygen.
  • Mulching is also an effective and environmentally friendly way of controlling weeds without the use of chemicals.
  • Mulch should not be applied any thicker than 75mm. Fine mulch should be applied more thinly eg 40mm, coarser material can be applied more thickly. Just remember that much that is applied to thick cause’s DE oxygenation and this can kill plants.
