Mulching

As well as being part of our winter maintenance programme, we can carry out mulching and membrane laying at any time of year. Mulching is the application of material (from horticultural and arboriculture waste, forest bark, pea shingle or stone chippings), onto beds and borders. Mulching suppresses weed growth, keeps moisture in the soil and assists new planting in times of drought. As well as providing those benefits to the plants, mulching is often used for visual enhancement.

In case your mulch starts to smell more like vinegar, it can be a sign of mulch decomposing. This tends to result in the mulch developing toxicity which can kill the plants around. There are various ways to reverse the toxicity around mulch and each case might be slightly different. If this happens in your garden get in touch with us and we will be able to assist you further.

Membranes

Membranes are permeable liners which we lay down on to soil to protect the soil from certain mulching materials, or where very low maintenance of beds and borders is preferred. Membranes can be cut easily to allow planting into the soil below and help to suppress the weeds from growing. When using membrane you can still water the ground as the water and air keep flowing. This will keep the ground healthy and support the plants.
