Autumn is when leaves fall, the weather cools down, and gardeners start preparing their landscapes for the winter months. Aside from fertilising and planting, mulching is one of the most important tasks this season.
In this blog, Wholesale Sleeper Co shares the best types of garden mulch for Autumn landscaping in Australia.
Forest Litter is made from the chippings from tree surgeons. It can be from any tree or shrub at any given time, and it will change from day to day. No two loads are the same. It is an economical mulch, great for suppressing weeds, retaining moisture, and providing a natural look to garden beds.
Organic Mulch is made from decomposed plant matter, such as leaves, grass clippings, and kitchen scraps. It’s nutrient-rich and can improve soil health over time. It is an affordable and great option for vegetable gardens, as it provides nutrients for growing plants.
Tan Bark mulch is made from the bark of pine trees and is a popular option for landscaping. It has a natural reddish-brown colour and a medium texture. It is great for adding a decorative touch to garden beds while retaining moisture and suppressing weeds.
Pebbles are a long-lasting option for mulching made of various types of pebbles or gravel. They can create a decorative look to garden beds and are often used in landscaping as they don’t require topping up often. Pebbles are great for retaining heat and providing a long-lasting option for mulching, but they do not provide any nutrients to the soil.
