Mulch

If there’s one thing you can do to protect your garden or landscape it’s to add mulch to it. It’s the one simple action you can take that could potentially bring your plants back to life and prevent current and future disasters.

We’re talking about real mulching with real workable materials that your plants will be able to benefit from. Granted that alternative, painted chunks of wood, still has the potential to break down into the soil eventually, but the process is slow and ugly. It isn’t meant to serve the purposes that mulch naturally provides.

Mulching has many benefits such as: helps retain moisture in the soil, keeps soil cool in the summer and helps suppress weed growth. In addition, while the wood mulch decomposes it reduces soil compaction which leaves openings for roots to expand. Decomposition also returns micro nutrients and minerals including carbon into the soil which is essential for healthy plant growth.

Chocolate Mulch

The primary functions of mulch are to inhibit the growth of weeds, to prevent the soil from eroding, and to retain the soil’s moisture. Many gardeners choose?Chocolate Mulch, our natural black mulch, as it offers some benefits over the others.

Chocolate Mulch is made from Melaleuca. As it decomposes it breaks down into dark organic matter which works into the soil like an additive, making the soil more permeable and releasing nutrients into the plants.

Chocolate Melaleuca Mulch also retards the growth of weeds and slows water evaporation. Chocolate Mulch also enriches the soil by encouraging beneficial earthworms and replenishing microbes.

The rich, coarse texture also makes it aesthetically appealing. In shady areas it provides the perfect contrast for your foliage, thereby brightening them up and making them stand out.

Pine Straw

pine straw

Pine Straw is the fresh fallen pine needles consisting primarily of longleaf and slash pines removed from the forest floor and bailed. Pine straw is a great choice for renewable, native organic mulch. Just a 2-3 inch layer of mulch is all that is required to create an effective weed barrier while allowing water to penetrate easily. The pine needles interlock together and stick into the ground below. So even on landscapes with a considerable slope the pine straw will not wash away under the frequent tropical rainstorms. Our pine needle straw is a 100% sustainable mulch, and provides a treeless alternative to traditional mulches.

Pine needle straw is slightly acidic so when it breaks down it keeps the soils ph low and acidic. Our all-natural straw makes an excellent choice as a mulch for many of the well-known Southern acid loving plants, trees & shrubs. The average square bale of straw is 12 x 13 x 27 inches long and weighs from 15-20 pounds. Bales spread approximately 50-60 square feet at 3-4 inches in depth.
