Make over my garden

2 Aug, 2018

I want to make over my garden

Need a general spruce up for Christmas or getting ready to sell your home?

Fancying up the garden can be as easy as putting on a layer of mulch. It is that simple.

Move over basic bark, our range of Forever Mulches — red, black and brown — can immediately give your garden a contemporary look. And the best bit? It won“t need topping up for another two to three years. Forever Mulch will also help to lock in the soil“s moisture, meaning you wont have to water as often and it is a barrier against those pesky weeds.

Looking fancy is fine for some, but what if you want a complete overhaul?

If you are thinking of giving your garden an extreme makeover, you have lots of options.

Starting with soil

Adding a soil with good structure and the resistance to compaction will ensure a happy growing medium for your plants for many years to come.

Adding the good stuff

Adding organic matter (either mixing in Organic Compost yourself or using a soil with it already mixed in) will keep your soil healthy and teeming with all of the good bugs and nutrients that helps make a healthy garden.

Layering with mulch

Topping your garden off with a layer of good quality mulch will retain moisture, regulate temperatures, keep weeds at bay and over time, allow the breakdown of nutrients into your soil. Choose from the finest grade full of organic matter, a chunkier look with the added nutrients of Blood and Bone, or a contemporary designer look.

Ultimately, improving water saving practices and reducing economic overheads for farmers. But how exactly does it do this?
