Mulch treatment to improve soil

When mulching, undecayed organic materials such as grass cuttings, leaves, etc. are finely cut and used to cover the ground or to provide

additional protection for plants. Mostly lawn clippings, leaves or foliage are used between vegetables, flowers, shrubs and trees. Bark is

often used as much in perennial beds and around shrubs. Adding Microlife promotes decay whilst preventing putrefaction.

The use of mulch has many benefits

  • keeps the roots and soil moist even in hot weather
  • weed growth is slowed down
  • the ground becomes less muddy or eroded in heavy rains
  • wind erosion can be prevented
  • organic fertiliser is made as the mulch decays and is gradually subsumed by the organisms in the soil
