Your Garden Needs Mulch As It Nourishes And Hydrates

If you are battling with your garden or crops, mulch in Western Australia (WA) will make all the difference. Some people mulch their garden or agricultural smallholding or farm on an annual basis, others do it before the winter only. It all depends on the soil that you have, how fertile your land is, and the rainfall. Mulch is a natural combination of natural garden and crop cuttings - leaves that have fallen down, crops that have been cut down, bark, branches, flowers and plants. Mulch never has anything added to it, it is purely organic, but all the ingredients are rich in nutrients.

Mulch must be organic

For mulch to work to its fullest extent, it must have no additives. This is why it is very careful, when arranging a mulch delivery, that you use a good supplier. Most people who supply mulch will have another business that is to do with trees, plants, crops, agriculture or firewood. The natural off cuttings from all of these things make mulch, and make the best mulch there is. Check your source when you arrange to buy mulch and ensure you are buying from source. This way you know exactly what goes into your mulch.

Buying mulch in bulk

If you are buying mulch in bulk then the mulch will be delivered to the address where you are going to use the mulch. It will not only be delivered but it will be bought to the outdoor area where you need it. If you are only buying one or two bags of mulch, perhaps for a very small garden, then you should probably collect the mulch directly from the supplier. Mulch is not expensive as it is only made from offcuts of vegetation and everything mentioned above and it is all natural components. Mulch from a third party will be more expensive, chances are, and remember you will not know what has gone into it.

Why do people use mulch

Mulch is generally used by people who garden, who grow their own vegetables, who are in the middle of a dry spell, and who farm and have smallholdings or large farms. Mulch is a great alternative to a chemical fertiliser and it is spread over the garden area, including lawn, to provide moisture, protection and valuable nutrients. Any garden or crop that is mulched will be a lot more productive than a garden or farm that is not mulched. Mulch feeds the soil and it feeds the crops and if you want blooms and a booming crop, mulch is the way to go.

How often you mulch depends on your area, the size, and the weather conditions. If your property is very sheltered and moist, you may not need to mulch often at all. If you are in a large property, a smallholding or farm, and dependent on rain, you should probably mulch at least twice a year. Mulch can be bought directly from suppliers and is an inexpensive product. It must however be a  good quality product to work.

You can find mulch WA from the same people who supply firewood.
