The mix of small and medium sized pieces will bind together to hold their shape and position, making it fantastic for windy spots or slopes. It will add to the soil condition as it breaks down.

We recommend laying Milled Mulch to a depth of 75-100mm and it should be topped up annually.

Recycled Mulch


Recycled Mulch is produced from processed locally collected kerbside greenwaste. Improves moisture retention, encourage worm and microbial activity, suppress weeds, reduce sharp changes in soil temperature and prevent soils from repelling water. As the mulch breaks down it will further add organic material back to the soil.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the recycled nature of this product, it may contain occasional rubbish and other inorganic material.

Lucerne

Grown primarily for animal feed, lucerne is high in nitrogen and is less likely to contain seeds than pea straw, but as a crop, does require higher levels of water to grow. Lucerne improves soil structure and increases nutrient levels as it breaks down. Lucerne helps stimulate root growth and decreases the chance of root disease in the soil.

Suitable for:

  • Rose gardens
  • Vegie patches
  • Annual garden beds
  • General garden beds

Pea Straw

Pea straw is a crop high in nitrogen grown mostly for animal feed. When used as mulch it breaks down within a year and improves soil structure and nutrient levels. The straw can contain pea seeds that are easily removed or dug over when they first shoot.

Suitable for:

  • Vegie patches
  • Annual garden beds
  • General garden beds
  • Fruit trees

Sugar Cane Mulch

Sugar cane mulch is a by-product of the sugar industry and is transported from Northern Queensland. It is a clean, straw-like mulch that contains low levels of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulphur. If it dries out, Sugar Cane Mulch can become hydrophobic and hamper water movement to the soil. Improves soil structure as it breaks down.

Suitable for:

  • Rose gardens
  • Annual garden beds
  • General garden beds
  • Slopes
  • Native gardens

Organic Compost


Although this is classed as a compost, many customers are choosing to use the Organic Compost as a mulch as well. It is a finer grade than the Recycled Mulch so will break down and need replacing sooner.

Locally sourced, composted material that re-purposes green waste that otherwise would end up in landfill. Our Compost contains composted plant matter that is rich in nutrients and helps improve impoverished soils, as well as helping to retain moisture. Our organic compost is made to Australian Standards AS 4454 at a temperature that kills any weed seeds and diseases. The combination of smaller and larger timber pieces provide ongoing carbon to feed and provide a substrate for the beneficial microbes in the soil that help to keep your plants healthy.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the recycled nature of this product, it may contain occasional rubbish and other inorganic material.

USES:
· Rose, Vegetable and Herb gardens
· Native gardens
· Aerated through the base of a new lawn before adding Lawn Mix

Other Mulch Options

Many other products can be used as mulch. Mulch is generally a product that is put on top of the soil to reduce water loss and suppress weed growth, so don’t forget alternative products such as granitic sand and lilydale or tuscan toppings… or even some of our screenings products 7 or 14 mm.
