Mulching program for the better
We have been working down at Mawson Lakes on some landscape upgrades. Works carried out have been rejuvenating soil, planting some hardy plants and mulching. At UVG our mulching program is good for the environment! Why? Because we use high-quality wood/compost mulch that keeps weeds down because it limits the amount of weeds that spring up in the open spaces. The mulch acts as a barrier, limiting the amount of sunlight that can find its way to the weeds. A slow release of nutrients also improves the quality of the soil as it decomposes.
In our hot and dry climate mulching is also good for moisture retention as most plants need constant moisture for proper growth whilst at the same time maintaining a more constant soil temperature control.
