As the Summer appears to have finally arrived we thought it was a good idea to remind you of the importance of mulching…

To help your garden conserve water it is a good idea to mulch flowerbeds – spreading a layer of woodchip over the surface. In their native environments, a thick layer of decaying organic matter on the forest floor surrounds trees and plants and mulching replicates this.

Mulching helps to trap moisture in the soil by reducing evaporation, which will be exceptionally helpful if the weather continues to heat up. It also prevents weeds and enhances the look of a garden too!

We recommend spreading a layer that is a minimum of 50mm deep over the surfaces surrounding trees and plants.

We are able to supply and deliver mature woodchip, ideal for mulching. Please get in touch to order yours on 01306 611661.
