TREE MULCHING SERVICES MELBOURNE
We live in a harsh climate, and we're constantly reminded to be waterwise in our landscaping projects. It's why mulch has become such valuable material for a healthy, happy garden. Do you know from where your mulch comes? If you're looking at mulch for sale in Melbourne, you want to make sure it's helping your garden, not harming it.
Why is mulch so important for a healthy garden
Mulch is more than just a top layer of dressing. It plays a crucial role in keeping gardens growing.
Moisture retention is a must in summer for gardens. A good layer of mulch prevents the ground from drying out, and will keep trees from being stressed by dehydration. During the cooler months, it helps to keep warmth in ground for longer.
Black plastic is no longer used to reduce weed growth. This is a bad idea, as time and research has shown. This is especially true in the summer when the earth heats up to scorching temperatures. As a natural material, a substantial layer of mulch has the ability to stop the weeds reaching sunlight, while still allowing air circulation and effective watering.
Soil enrichment - one of the greatest advantages of a good mulch is that it breaks down over time and becomes a part of the earth. This is why healthy mulch is vital to the overall health of the garden or landscape. Without a nutrient rich soil, or one that's affected by chemicals, trees will struggle to grow to their full potential.
Garden ecosystem - ever moved back the top layer of mulch to see things scurrying around under there. This is what you want. Not only do these creepy-crawlies help to break down the mulch to create a better soil, they also encourage a natural ecosystem to flourish. More insects, birds, bees and nature.
Garden cohesion is the last use of mulch. It's all about the aesthetics, how it looks in the garden. By using similar or contrasting colours or materials, mulch can be used to link different areas of the garden for a more cohesive and structured appearance.
