If you have large garden beds or acreage to mulch, or you want to tidy up and mulch garden beds in investment properties, our new hardwood mulch might be just what you are looking for.
It’s been a while since we had it in stock, but we have been able to source some wonderful, course graded hardwood mulch and we have it in the yard right now.
Our new mulch is golden brown in colour and is an excellent budget mulch for those large scale jobs.
Hardwood mulch has terrific weed suppression and water retention qualities.
It also clings extremely well to steep slopes.
Now, while hardwood mulch is an excellent choice for garden beds and larger scale areas, it is less suitable for beds that butt up against buildings (particularly wooden ones), because it is not termite resistant.
When calculating how much mulch you need to effectively cover an area, we recommend you apply it at 100 - 150mm.
When you apply it at a lesser rate, sunlight can still get through to the soil and weeds will still grow through it, which often defeats the purpose of applying it in the first place.
We also recommend that you fertilize the application area prior to mulching, for best results.
The best way to get your garden thriving and maximise the warmth and rain provided by Mother Nature, is to mulch. There are so many types of mulch to choose from, and it is important that you pick one that is best for your particular project.
Unscreened sand is soil that has been excavated from dig outs around the Sunshine Coast, and is ideal to use for levelling or filling in low areas. This soil is quite clean, but has not been broken down or sifted in any way and may have roots, weeds, sticks and rocks in it.
Hurray for the rain! And now we can talk about rain gardens, and how they can make an attractive decorative addition to your garden, as well as conserve precious water.
