WHY MULCH WHEN LANDSCAPING IN PERTH

While brainstorming ideas for your latest landscaping project in Perth, you have probably spent a lot of time thinking about the layout of your space and dreaming of the design features you would like to include. However, you probably haven’t given much thought to which type of mulch to apply and it’s benefits. Although mulch isn’t known to be the prettiest member of the landscape materials family, it plays a key role in soil health and subsequently plant health.

A broad definition of mulch is a layer of organic material applied to the soils surface. Mulch has a long list of benefits, some of which include:

  • Increased water conservation, by reducing moisture loss from the surface of the soil
  • weed suppression, by preventing the spread and germination of weed seeds
  • it acts as an insulator, helping to maintain a stable soil temperature
  • it can add additional nutrients to the soil and improve soil structure as it breaks down
  • it can be used to enhance the aesthetics of a space.

Typically mulch can be broken down into three main categories, including straw based mulches, wood and bark based mulches and stone based mulches.
