Decorative Pebble Is The Perfect Mulch For Succulents

1 min read

Decorative pebble is a product that we love, but recommend for use as a mulch with some caution. This is because in our very hot Summer months, the decorative pebble tends to heat up and can damage the plants it surrounds. There is an exception to this though, and that is Succulents.

Succulents are beautiful, hardy plants that have become extremely popular in recent years, owing in part to the spectacular range of varieties, sizes, shapes, textures, patterns and colours available.

They are especially well suited to Australian conditions because they need very little soil or water to survive, and they are almost impossible to kill. In fact, you could say they thrive on a bit of neglect.

As we have mentioned, Succulents need very little water to do well, and are susceptible to fungal disease if they get wet feet. Our recommendation for planting your Succulents out is to blend a good quality garden soil or potting mix with sand or gravel, which facilitates sharper drainage.

In terms of mulching, this is where a well chosen decorative pebble can really shine, by enhancing the design of your garden (providing contrasting or complimentary shapes, textures and colours), protecting your plants, allowing them to drain efficiently and keeping your garden clean. Unlike some organic types of mulch, decorative pebble discourages vermin in the garden.
