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.
Both garden soils and plants benefit from mulch. While you can mulch at any time of the year, doing so in autumn makes a lot of sense. Here are some tips to make sure your plants thrive after an application of organic mulch!
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.
