Types Of Mulch We Offer

Tea Tree Mulch

Tea tree mulch offers excellent all-round hydration and protection from weeds. It’s particularly effective at regulating temperature around the base of the plant, preventing delicate roots from becoming too hot or cold. Tea tree mulch has anti-bacterial and insect repellant properties – it can keep termites away, as well as being harmless to other garden wildlife.

Cypress Mulch

Cypress mulch is an economical choice that’s great for larger areas or where cost is a consideration. It offers the same weed protection, hydration and nutrition benefits as other forms of mulch, but can be more cost-effective. Cyprus mulch may become slightly acidic, so it’s a great mulch for use around magnolias, Japanese anemones or Acers.

Forest Mulches

Forest mulch is made from chips of different trees. It’s extremely slow to decompose, resulting in a long-lasting mulch that may not need reapplying for several years. It’s excellent for controlling the temperature around the plant’s base and preventing weed growth or dehydration.

What Is Mulch Used For?

Mulch is primarily used to surround trees and shrubs to prevent the growth of weeds and reduce evaporation rates from the soil. It also prevents soil from being blown away during more arid periods. Mulch is an attractive soil covering that reduces plant maintenance. It gradually rots down, providing valuable nutrients and fibre for the soil.

How Much Mulch Do I Need For My Garden?

This depends on the mulch depth, as well as the area to be covered. In general, trees and large shrubs will need 2-4″ of mulch (5-7.5cm). Roses will need about 2″ (5cm) depth of mulch. Mulch should be at least an inch deep to prevent weeds, but not more than 4″ deep, or there is a risk of rot and water-logging. Multiply the required depth by the area to work out the volume of mulch you need.

Mulch FAQs

Selecting the right mulch for your Gold Coast garden involves considering several factors. The Gold Coast has many popular mulch types available such as tea tree, cypress and forest mulch, each with its own set of benefits. Tea tree mulch, for instance, offers excellent weed control, hydration and nourishment for your plants. It also regulates the soil temperature and repels insects. Cypress mulch is a cost-effective option suitable for larger areas and provides similar advantages to other mulch types. Forest mulch is made from chips of different trees and takes a long time to decompose. It also maintains soil temperature and moisture levels, thereby preventing weed growth and dehydration. Ultimately, the most appropriate mulch type for your garden will depend on your specific requirements and preferences.

While the colour of mulch is subjective, there are several things to bear in mind when choosing a colour for your Gold Coast garden. It is recommended to opt for natural brown or earthy colours that complement the local landscape and create a cohesive look. In some cases, red-hued mulch can add a splash of colour to your garden. Keep in mind that the colour of the mulch may fade over time due to exposure to sunlight and weathering.

Mulch and soil have distinct roles in a garden. Soil provides the fundamental foundation and necessary nutrients for plant growth, while mulch is used primarily for weed suppression, soil moisture conservation and soil temperature regulation. Therefore, mulch and soil work hand in hand to create an optimal environment for your plants. While mulch is vital, it should not replace soil.

Mulch releases nutrients to the soil as it decomposes, but it should not be relied on as the primary source of nutrients for your plants. It is essential to use a balanced fertiliser and organic matter to enrich the soil and enhance plant growth. Organic matter such as compost enhances soil structure and provides essential nutrients to your plants. Mulch also helps to retain moisture and prevent soil erosion, which promotes plant growth.

The lifespan of mulch depends on several factors, including climate and mulch type. Typically, mulch lasts between one to four years before requiring replacement. Regular inspections of your mulch’s condition can help determine whether it needs replacement or refreshing. If the mulch is compacted or waterlogged, it may require rejuvenation, and if weed growth or other problems arise, it is advisable to replace the mulch. Regular upkeep and maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of your mulch and keep your garden healthy.
