Tea tree mulch repels termites, sandflies & midgies

tea-tree-mulchTea tree mulch is one of the more versatile garden mulches we have in the yard, and it is also one of our favourite products.

Applying mulch is like tucking a blanket around your plants, but it is not just to keep them warm. A good mulch regulates soil temperature, amongst other things, and one of the best things you can do for your plants is to use tea tree mulch in your garden. Tea tree mulch is an excellent product.

It is made by grinding up the wood and bark of Melaleuca tea trees. Tea tree mulch in gardens accomplishes almost everything that mulch can accomplish. Tree pieces are ground up into a fibrous, rich mulch that you can use on any plant, and which will beautifully enrich the soil as it decomposes.

One important function of tea tree mulch is moisture control. Mulch prevents the sun and wind from drying out your soil, leaving your plants less stressed, even if they aren’t getting maximum irrigation. Tea tree mulch in gardens dramatically slows evaporation. Tea tree mulch prevents weeds from crowding in by creating a physical barrier to weed growth. This stops weed seeds from reaching the soil, and also prevents weeds already in the soil from getting the sun they need to grow.

There are yet more tea tree mulch benefits in the garden. One is temperature control. Use of tea tree mulch in gardens keeps the soil surface cool in hot weather.

It also warms up the soil in winter. Tea tree mulch is known to repel termites, sandflies, and midgies, but it is friendly to the earthworms that are so beneficial for your soil.

It has a pleasant, clean, astringent smell that makes your garden fresh and fragrant. And it disintegrates more slowly than some other mulches (up to a full year on the soil).

And last, but far from least, when it comes to tea tree mulch adds vital organic matter to the soil. As the mulch deteriorates, it mixes with the soil and improves its structure.

You can buy tea tree mulch here, and we can supply any quantity you need, from the bucket to the bag, to the cubic metre. In any event, after this beautiful rain, head out into the garden and treat your beds to this beautiful mulch.
