Mulching

Why should you mulch your garden?

  1. Mulch helps retain moisture by keeping the soil moist. This reduces your need to water as much (you still need to water your plants - preferably in the morning).
  2. It blocks out sunlight to the soil working as a barrier to stop those pesky weeds from sprouting!
  3. Mulch creates an insulating barrier between the soil and the air. Helping your garden stay cool during the scorching summer months and wrapping it in a warm blanket in the winter.
  4. Protects the garden from soil erosion and compaction.
  5. Mulching can beautify your garden. It makes your plants stand out and adds a bit of colour!
  6. As mulch breaks down overtime it gives organic matter and nutrients back to the soil.
