Organic Mulch

All Mulch Is NOT The Same! All Mulch Is NOT Good For Your Plants.


If you regularly buy mulch in bags (or bulk) from a local hardware store or landscaping outlet, there’s a good chance it’s been made from ground up pallets. When you compare it to organic mulch there's a clear distinction. Though it may make your lawn look attractive, it actually creates several problems for your plants.

Namely:

  • Carries very little nutritional value for your plants.
  • Takes much longer to break down and decompose.
  • Ground too fine and creates an impenetrable barrier to water and oxygen exchange.

QUICK TIP: After a rain (or watering) dig down below your mulch to see if water is getting through. If it’s not, the much is too fine and you should consider replacing it.

Why Organic Mulch Is Best For Your Plants.


Organic mulch is superior to other types of mulch because it mimics a natural forest floor. It contains all the organic material plants need to stay healthy. Such as:

  • check
    Wood
  • check
    Bark
  • check
    Leaves
