Forest Mulch


This coarse unscreened mulch which consists of both bark and green plant material provides the soil with both a carbon and nitrogen combination that will increase the availability of nutrients to plants during its decomposition. This product is subject to variation in its content.

Similar to the melaleuca mulch, this mulch is subjected to a strict pasteurization process to help eliminate pathogens and weed seed. Another reason for pasteurization is to eliminate most of the water content within the leaf matter. This therefore ensuring the customers volume of product does not dramatically decrease after purchase. (Fresh forest mulch can reduce in volume by as much as 40% within it first three months).

Why mulch?
Mulching has many advantages:
  • Minimises water evaporation from the soil
  • Stops weed seeds from germinating
  • Increases microbial activity and aids in building a healthier soil structure
  • Releases organic nutrients into the soil for the plants
  • Moderates soil temperature
  • Helps prevent soil erosion from both wind and water
  • Improves the appearance of the garden
  • Minimises hard work in the garden
Which mulch?
One size does not fit all! When choosing a mulch, consider:
  • The purpose for which you require the mulch
  • How long you want it to last
  • How attractive you want it to be
  • How good it is for the plants and soil
  • What's available, and how much do you want to spend
How much mulch?

If you wish to maximise the benefits of mulching then most barks and mulches should be applied at a depth of between 7.5 to 10 cm (3 to 4โ€). 

This level of application will mean that you will only need to top them up about every 15 to 18 months. 

To apply 10cm (4โ€): Measure the approximate length and width of the area to determine the m2 you wish to cover with the bark or mulch. Divide this area by 10 to determine the m3.

[Area m2 รท10 = vol m3 to a depth of 10cm (4โ€)]. 

TIP: To keep your bark looking fresh, loosely turn the bark approximately every six months!
