Using mulch on a garden or as part of a landscaping project will result in a healthier, more weed free and drought-resistant end result, by comparison to using soil alone.
On commercial sites, it means your plants will have a much better rate of survival, and will need a lot less maintenance in the crucial first 12 month period.
Treescape® produces mulch in a variety of qualities, depending on your requirements. Green mulch, high grade mulch and medium grade mulch are all available by the square meter from selected depots.
Mulch is typically made up of formerly living material such as chopped leaves, wood chips, and shredded bark. It is made up purely from 100% vegetation waste, or green waste collected from field sites.
Some benefits to using mulch include:
- Moderates soil-temperature fluctuations.
- Protects plant roots from winter cold and helps prevent frost-heaving, where plants are pushed out of the ground by the natural expansion and contraction of the soil.
- In hot-summer areas, helps keep plant roots cooler.
- Can add nutrition to your garden as it breaks down.
Treescape®‘s mulch is not contaminated with pest vegetation such as bamboo, and is free from fibrous waste such as that from palm vegetation (e.g. yucca and phoenix). These products are processed separately.
If you have booked a Treescape® crew to carry out vegetation work on your property, the mulch, limbs and waste will be taken care of according to your specifications. There are a number of options available, so talk to your Treescape® representative to find out more.
Treescape® can also deliver mulch by the truck load, or you can collect tree mulch by the square meter from selected depots.
