FAQ

Why should I put mulch on my garden?


There are a few important reasons to mulch. The first, and probably the most important, is for water conservation. Mulch stops the top of the soil drying out, keeps the soil moist, and can reduce watering by about 60 per cent. Mulching also helps to supress weeds and weed seed germination, which compete with plants for moisture and nutrients. Mulching also keeps the soil temperature constant, and by using an organic mulch it means you're adding extra organic matter to the soil. So that's an extra benefit.
