Mulch

Mulch is essential to any waterwise garden as it minimises evaporation from the soil - and while it keeps the water in, it helps to keep the heat and wind out! Applying mulch as a finishing layer to your garden assists with shielding your plants from the elements, while keeping your soil cooler during the warmer months...all while making your garden look great!

 

Application of mulch

Spread to 50-100mm deep

  • Water in well
  • Leave a gap of at least 50mm from the trunk
  • Make sure water is penetrating the mulch and wetting the soil
  • May need fewer, heavier irrigations to ensure the plant rootzone is wet each time
