Mulching assists with water conservation as it stops the top layer of the soil from drying out, keeps the soil moist and helps to reduce watering. Mulching will also help prevent weeds and keep your soil temperature consistant helping to promote plant growth. When using an organic mulch you will also be feeding your soil by adding extra organic material to the soil as the mulch breaks down. For best results we recommend mulching your garden beds to a depth of between 7cm and 10cm
One of the most effective ways of improving the soil in your garden beds is by applying an organic mulch or woodchip. Mulch has an amazing number of benefits including:
Mulching can prevent evaporation from the soil by up to 70 per cent.
Regulates soil temperature to insulate and protect plant roots in extreme weather conditions.
Minimises soil erosion from soil and rain.
Breaks down, providing soil organic matter.
Adds to the appeal of the garden by providing a uniform look at the base of plants.
Mulch or Woodchip
There are two main types of mulch we sell at Richmond Sand Gravel and Landscaping, Mulch and Wood-chip. Mulches will break down quicker adding nutrients to your garden bed whilst wood chips will take longer to break down giving you coverage for longer. We also stock a range of mulches that have natural termite resistance which are perfect for mulching garden beds close to or against your house.
