Natural Cedar Mulch

Natural cedar mulch provides a stable ground cover for trees and shrubs protecting the root system from extreme heat and cold> It also helps to retain moisture and reduce watering, reduces weed growth and is a natural insect repellent. Cedar mulch is acidic by nature, leaching into the root system. Ideal for all plants, particularly acid-loving plants.

Why should I mulch, and how much mulch do I need?

Mulching is a great way to keep your plants happy and healthy. It can also help cut down on the maintenance of your yard work:

  • Inhibits weed germination and growth. (Weeds are not only unsightly, but they also steal resources from desirable garden plants!)
  • Holds in soil moisture, protecting your plants from drying out quickly
  • Moderates soil-temperature fluctuations (This benefit is especially valuable during that turbulent-weather period in spring when you don’t want your plants to be stressed.)
  • In cold-winter areas, protects plant roots from winter cold and helps prevent frost-heaving, in which plants are literally pushed out of the ground by the natural expansion and contraction of the soil as it cools off and heats up
  • In hot-summer areas, helps keep plant roots cooler
  • Depending on what you use, adds a bit of welcome nutrition to your garden as it breaks down

For best results from any kind of mulching routine, provide a 2-3 inch layer to your garden in the spring for water retention and again in the fall for winter protection. Mulch areas should be cleared of all weeds, leaves, and grass. Most wood and bark mulch materials provide approximately the same level of service, and the choice between materials is based more on appearance. Generally mulch is applied every year, but cultivation or raking of the mulch can help invigorate older mulch, and can help spruce up the colour of any dyed mulch.
