Adding mulch to your garden does so much more than simply make it look amazing! In fact, mulching can also help to cool the soil, reduce evaporation (and increase soil water retention), suppress the germination of weeds, and add organic matter throughout your garden.  

What’s more, in Australia, our scorching hot summers can easily burn away all of the vital carbon and nutrients from the topsoil, thus reducing its overall fertility. Fortunately, with mulching, it can help to cool it down and help the handy little organisms in your soil to thrive.  

Now, the question is, do you want to mulch your garden yourself? Or would you prefer to hire professionals to install the mulch on your behalf? In either case, how much is it going to cost you? What is considered to be a fair price for mulching? And how much is a bag of mulch near you?  

In this article, we’ll take you through the various prices and applications of mulch, for your convenience, so that you can make an informed decision as to which approach is best for you. Let’s take a closer look… 

It depends on a number of factors. How much time do you have on your hands? Because, technically speaking, you don’t have to pay a single penny for mulch if you don’t want to.  

Of course, creating your own mulch does require a fair amount of work and it certainly doesn’t help you if you need some mulch immediately.   

In any case, mulch is made up of chopped up dead leaves, tree branches, bark, and trimmings. So, you can go around your property and collect all of the green waste that you can find, and you’ll have the makings of your very own mulch. Once you have these, you can simply process them through a wood chipper, and then voila!   

Of course, this is all well and good if you have a wood chipper, and the spare time to go around foraging for green-waste. Otherwise, you’re going to have to pay for it.
