Most people know what mulch is. But there’s a lot to know about the different types of Sunshine Coast mulch, and many tips and tricks to ensure the best results in your garden. There are four important reasons to mulch.
The first, and probably the most important, is for water conservation. Mulch stops the top of the soil drying out, keeps the soil moist, and can reduce watering by about 60 per cent.
Mulching also prevents weeds and weed seed germination, which compete with plants for moisture and nutrients.
Mulching also keeps the soil temperature constant, and using an organic mulch means you’re adding extra organic matter to the soil. So that's an added benefit.
Mulches can either be organic or inorganic, but we recommend organic mulches because they break down and add organic matter to the soil. This improves soil structure and drainage, and encourages earthworm and soil microbial activity.
Organic mulches, such as straw based mulches, are quite common. We have recently introduced a heat treated, pathogen free, organic Australian made mulch called EnviroMulch. It is made using renewable Australian resources, so it ticks lots of boxes. We also have fifteen other types of mulches in the yard which suit a range of purposes and budgets.
