Pine Bark mulches are a great organic choice. An advantage of the bark based mulches is they take longer to break down so you don’t have to apply them as often. They come in a range of grades, from fine and medium to coarse. It’s best to use medium to coarse grade bark mulches because they don’t absorb any moisture and allow rainfall, or irrigation water, to penetrate the soil where it’s needed.
Studies have confirmed that mulch prevents water loss through evaporation and helps to buffer soil temperatures. Mulching the garden can inhibit weed germination or suppress weed growth. Eucalyptus has a moderate settling rate, meaning it lasts longer in the landscape. Eucalyptus is also one of the mulches that showed the least change in colour after a two year period.
Leaf mulch returns nutrients back to the soil. Your lawn and gardens will require less fertilizer and other additives. By keeping your lawns nutrients in place, your lawn will be able to cycle important nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous.
Leaf mulch helps retain moisture in your soil. When soil is covered, the mulch lowers the soil’s exposure to sun and wind which reduces evaporation. This will help protect against drought and also reduce the need to water your lawn.
