How Much Mulch Do You Need?

1 min read

We've said it before, but it truly is critical to mulch your garden regularly to keep it healthy.

Mulch helps to stabilise temperatures in the soil zone, it suppresses weed growth and assists with water retention in the soil.

Organic mulches enhance nutrient levels and encourage life giving microbes and worms. To cut a long story short, the more mulch you can use the better.

So now that we are all aware of the role mulch plays in keeping a garden healthy, the next problem many people have is trying to figure out how much mulch they need to do the job properly.

So here are a couple of tips to help you out:

  1. Find the square of the area to be mulched, either using a tape measure, or simply pace it out. For example, if you have a garden bed that is 12m x 1m, you have an area that is 12 square metres.
  2. For a mulch coverage 10cm deep, divide the square area by 10. Using the same example, this would mean you would need a minimum of 1.2 cubic metres of mulch.

Nice and easy.

Even simpler, is our online area and volume calculator. You can find it here
