Mulch isn't just for blocking weeds and making your garden look nice. It also helps to keep the soil warm and moist. While it certainly isn't enough to prevent annuals from dying or keep perennialsrom going dormant, decomposing organic matter creates heat. A healthy layer of mulch can go along was toward protecting roots and bulbs from encroaching frost. Also, a thick blanket of mulch offers better protection for beneficial wildlife that may be over-wintering beneath the soil in your garden.
To protect your plants from the cold weather, now is a great time to add a layer of Coastal Landscape Supplies very own MEGA MULCH - about 50mm think over your whole garden.
Our mega mulch is a 50/50 blend of aged shredded pine and organic compost and will protect your garden from the cold, conserve moisture and also add valuable nitrogen back into the soil with the composts combination of untreated sawdust mixed with paunch grass turned over for approximately 12 months creating a stable environment to replenish nutrients. Because the compost has good bacteria and fungi feeding the plants naturally it makes them stronger and healthier therefore less likely to be attacked by nasty desieses or bad fungi.
You can buy our fabulous mega mulch by the 40ltr bag ($9 or 4 for $30), the trailer load (6x4 size - $50), or the cubic metre ($90) and we can deliver! Call us today on (04) 2936621 to order.
