CHOOSING THE BEST MULCH FOR YOUR GARDENING AND LANDSCAPING
In the gardening world, the use of Mulch is becoming more and more popular with many gardeners seeing this as an essential time saving product which can have a major impact on the appearance of their gardens. It is also one of the most environmentally friendly substances around, as it is made from waste, and debris from everyday life.
The variations of Mulch can be enormous, whether you are looking for a light Mulch or a course Mulch or something in between. Some of the most ordinary of products can be reused and offer great assistance in the garden.
HOW DOES MULCH HELP YOUR GARDEN?
As the Mulch is placed over the top of your garden soil, it acts like a barrier to the release and waste of nutrients in the soil. By encasing the soil, it reduces the escape of moisture, deters weed and stops the underlying soil from eroding due to the fact that it is protected from the natural elements such as cold, heat, rain and wind.
HOW DO YOU APPLY MULCH TO YOUR SOIL?
The application of Mulch could not be easier, basically you just lay the Mulch on top of the existing garden soil (for maximum benefit it is advisable to lay the Mulch between 2 inches and 4 inches thick). The types of Mulch can vary substantially from a light Mulch to a very course Mulch, although what type you choose will depend entirely on the climate, soil type, etc.
