Mulching for Summer
With summer finally, upon us, it's important to utilise Mulch in your garden. Mulch acts as a blanket for your soil, keeping it cool in Summer and warm in Winter, and can play a vital role in both protecting gardens and the reduction of household water consumption (WIN!)
With Melbourne Summers being as unpredictable as they are, it's important to prepare your garden in advance. Mulch aids in trapping your garden's moister, serving as a protective insulating layer for the root zone. We recommend all types of mulch should be spread to a depth of approximately 75mm so that your soil is kept cool during hot days, and warm during the Winter.
Overall, using mulches is a great way to maintain a healthy garden, no matter what the weather! Mulch serves a variety of purposes:
- Reduces evaporation
- Decreases weed growth
- Adds interest to your garden (let's be honest, mulch is a lot more aesthetic than soil!)
- Insulates the soil, keeping it cool during the summer - perfect for this time of year!
