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.
Garden soils contain micro-organisms that may be harmful to your health. Always wear gloves, keep damp while in use, avoid inhaling the mix and wash your hands after use.
