The Mulch and Wood Co recommends wood chip mulch are placed as winter protection and should not be spread too early in the fall since this will cause the soil to freeze more slowly.
Our team recommends mulch with a medium texture. Fine particles can pack together and hold moisture that might otherwise evaporate before reaching the plant’s roots.
When leaves and other plant components degrade, humus forms as an organic component of the soil, organic mulches offer nutrients to the soil as they decay and generate humus. Organic mulch that has been composted or treated to kill weeds and insects before being applied.
With your mulch delivery, the application of the mulch must be made correctly, and this is where our crew excels. Excessive application can lead to deterioration and make lawns and plants more disease prone. Our crew ensures that the best garden mulch is provided with proper application. Applying a dense layer of fine mulch will trap a lot of water that will never benefit plant roots. If such mulches remain damp for an extended period of time, they can decay and spread disease. They also cut down on airflow.
The thicker the mulch can be applied, the chunkier it is. Chunky mulches can be utilised up to a depth of 60–75 mm without obstructing rain and irrigation. Mix 2mm or smaller fine-particle mulch with chunkier mulch with particle size more than 5mm if using fine-particle mulch.
