Garden Mulch Delivery

Most gardeners know that mulching is an is an essential part of looking after your soil. A good mulch, when spread across your garden beds to a depth around 5-10 cm will keep weeds down, shade the soil, help control wind and water erosion, look good and most importantly save water, lots of water. There is everything to gain from mulching and nothing to lose.

The key word here is GOOD mulches. At first thought it may seem that any cover on the soil would save water but that is not the case. Not all mulches are equal and not all save water despite what may be said on the bag or in the advertising.

Luscious heavily composted mulches may look great, but often they can actually increase the capillary action within your soils, causing them to dry out quicker.  

A Hastie Waste mulch, however, is rough, coarse and absolutely perfect for locking in the moisture in the soil over the hot summer months.  Our mulch includes leaves, shredded palms, prunings and wood chips.  The coarse particles form a natural airlock between your soil and the sun, which prevents the capillary action that dries out your soil.

Most of us have at one time or another tried composting.  We know it is a great way of disposing of all those kitchen scraps, clippings and green waste.  We also know that our plants love the growing in compost.  Good compost builds good soil structure, it enables soil to retain nutrients, water, and oxygen; protects against drought; helps maintain a neutral pH, and protects plants from many diseases and pests.

But how do you get enough compost to share this goodness across your entire garden?

The good news is we’ve been working with our partners on a large scale composting process.  It is made from organics that many of us put into our lime green food and garden waste bin (FOGO) at home, here in the South West, thus completing the cycle, back into your garden.

Our compost is screened to remove all particles over 10mm and is tested to Australian Standard AS4454-2012 for compost and soil conditioners.
