Our aged hardwood wood chip makes an excellent mulch. These materials decompose slowly making them long-lived, reducing the need for re-application.

They also make an excellent protective layer, moderating soil conditions by absorbing moisture and slowly releasing it back.

As with other mulches they help supress weeds and protect the soil from erosion, capping and compaction  by wind and rain.

Application of woody mulches

 

  • As with all mulches take care not to  cover herbaceous perennials or small bulbs
  • Do not mulch directly up against the base of tree trunks or shrubs as this can create a moist, low oxygen environment which may encourage disease. Leave a 8-10cm (3-4in) gap
  • It is best  to apply mulch to beds in early spring, before annual weeds become established. Mulches are most effective at suppressing weeds if applied before they get a foot-hold
  • Woody mulches can be applied any time of year, but try to avoid applying mulch to dry soils
  • Get the right depth: wood chippings due to their larger particle are less likely to compact and can be applied at a greater depth, about 8-12cm (3-5in), compared to traditional composted organic mulches such as garden compost or well-rotted manure that are best applied at depth 5-7.5cm (2-3in)
