Choosing the right mulch
It’s the cheapest one, there’s a reason for this:
The colour doesn’t last long
Breaks down a lot quicker
Doesn’t hold as much water as other mulches
Great for Home tidy-up when selling your home or before rent inspection.
Karri & Peat Mulch
The Best black mulch though more expensive, in the long run you will save money
Black colour holds at least 3 times longer then Budget/black mulch
Doesn’t breakdown as quickly
Holds a lot more water
Has nutrients in it for plants
Perfect for every garden native or tropical.
Woodchips are good for aesthetic qualities if you are after that look.
Not the cheapest
Most woodchips will fade to grey (you can turn them every few months to re-gain some colour
You can get dyed woodchips that don’t fade as quickly
No nutrients in the mulch
Easy to spread as it is light (good on the old back)
Please do not use council mulch as it hasn’t had enough time to breakdown into a mulch, you get a lot of seeds that you don’t want, plus it can have a fair few toxins that a lot of plants will not like. Council mulch should be used for council areas.
Also if you are after something different rather than mulch look at Gingin Loam, Stone Aggregate.
