Mulching is an enormously important part of soil management.
It helps to even out the soil temperature, minimise weed growth and reduce loss of soil moisture.
With droughts a feature of the Australian climate, soil water management is critical. Overall, people are becoming more aware of the value of mulching to optimise watering, the retention of moisture in the soil and controlling run-off.
In fact, mulching can prevent evaporation from the soil by up to 70%! The break down of organic mulch also releases nutrients into the soil to maximise fertility.
Environmental factors aside, more efficient use of water can result in significant cost savings as well.
There are many different types of mulches available, and it is important that you choose a mulch that is appropriate for you specific needs. But as this post is about Tea Tree mulch, here is some information that may help you to decide whether it will be useful for you.
Tea Tree mulch is made from Melaleuca plant residue after the tea tree oil has been extracted. It breaks down reasonably slowly and therefore lasts for quite a while.

Although we are heading into winter right now, our mild climate means that it is actually a very good time to install turf. In fact, there are some real advantages to laying turf as we head into our cooler months.
