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.
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 have a new range of beautiful, natural stone steppers and pavers in the yard that can provide a practical and timeless solution where you want to create walkways, or create definition or hard outdoor living areas around your garden.
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.
