The positives of mulch

Hi Guys & Girls,

Make the most of the recent rains! It's an ideal time to be mulching your garden beds. An ideal thickness for your mulch is between 40-60mm thick. A cubic meter (1m³) will cover approx 16m² at this thickness or if you have a smaller garden bed a 60L bag will cover 1m².


Mulch not only retains the moisture in your soil, it also regulates the soil temperature keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter which will lead to better plant growth and plant health. Mulch has great quality's in suppressing the weeds and it will also be making your gardens more attractive!

Looking forward to seeing you in the nursery soon.
