Earth Grow is a new line we are carrying that can be used as either a soil conditioner or mulch. It is a brilliant product to help restore nutrient depleted soil.
In general, using soil conditioners and mulches may promote stronger growth rates, encourages micro-organisms and improve worm populations in the soil. Products such as these can also enhance water holding in sandy soils and promote air porosity & water movement through the soil.
This can significantly reduce the water requirements of your garden. Finally, a really important benefit is that it provides critical organic nutrients to your soil.
This is key if the soil is degraded or depleted. It will need to be balanced and restored to successfully grow anything. To use as a soil conditioner, apply to a depth of approximately 100mm and dig into the soil to a depth of 200-250mm. This will add organic matter to clay, sandy and/or tired soils to improve nutrient levels, water holding ability, air porosity etc.
To use as a covering mulch that is dark in colour and high in nutrient value, apply to a depth of approximately 100mm.
This exceptional product is produced here on the Sunshine Coast, and is an organic blend of aged hoop fines, hardwood sawdust and mulch blended with a little cow manure (this is what makes it so ideal as a soil conditioner and mulch for nutrient depleted soil).
Earth Grow is available to purchase in bulk, and is $62m3.
Once some of this water subsides, you might be in the market for some pavers or steppers to create walkways, outdoor living zones or definition around your home.

We’ve had some much needed rain, and it is a very good time to get in to those garden beds, pull out the weeds, and top up the beds with a nice thick blanket of mulch. There are lots of different mulches to choose from and we have put together a quick run down of our top 5 tree mulches to give you an idea of some of what types of applications they suit best.
