1. Mulch assists with water conservation
Mulch can reduce watering by over 50%. This is because it keeps soil temperature constant whilst preventing weed seed germination. This creates a garden structure with better water management.
2. Mulch protects soil during summer conditions
Mulching provides a functional, protective layer over the soil. It traps moisture in the garden, serving as a protective, insulated layer for the root zone.
3. Mulch is a must for optimum garden health
In addition to providing great drainage, mulch also assists weed prevention, moisture and temperature control. It offers a natural organic layer, mimicking what naturally occurs in rainforests. Mulch is a sanctuary for plant-friendly insects and micro-organisms, promoting plant and garden health.
4. Mulch helps make landscaping low-maintenance
Mulch is a groundcover that requires minimal to no maintenance. Simply maintain a good depth by topping up the mulch annually or ever other year.
5. Mulching adds value to property
Property buyers seek well-maintained, beautiful landscape. Mulch gives a clean, well maintained look and has the power to influence the buyers’ decision. They'll feel that the yard is beautiful and move-in ready without work required on their part.
