It doesn’t matter what type of landscaping project you are trying to undertake. Be it a residential yard, garden, commercial development or even the land that runs alongside roads and motorways, mulch is a consistent component of the landscaping process. At Goodwood, our first-time customers often wonder what it is that mulch actually does, and why it is so important for so many different types of landscaping.
Why Mulch Matters for Landscaping
The first thing that is important to understand about mulch is that it is not defined by any specific type of material. At Goodwood, we sell wholesale timber mulch in Wellington, but not all mulches are made from wooden materials. On the contrary, mulch can be either organic (grass clippings, decaying leaves, compost, etc.) or non-organic (gravel, pebbles, stones or even plastic).
Instead of being a specific material, mulch is defined by its function. Specifically, mulch is meant to retain water or moisture, inhibit weed growth, moderate soil temperature (keep it from getting too hot or too cold) and prevent soil erosion. Mulch can also moderate the temperature of plant roots—again, keeping them from getting too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter and fall.
Sometimes, landscapers will use mulch for aesthetic purposes, to give a space a cohesive and consistent look while also preventing weed growth and flooding. Often, though, mulch is used to aid in the growth of plants—either for gardens or for landscaping settings that feature an array of different shrubs, bushes, flowers and other plants. For the latter purpose, organic mulches are better, as they break down over time, nurturing the soil and drawing earthworms and other beneficial creatures to your garden to till the soil. Since Goodwood’s wholesale mulch is not only made from timber but also features no herbicides or chemicals, it is particularly beneficial for plants and organic growing.
If you are shopping for wholesale mulch in Auckland or Wellington, Goodwood can help. Our mulch is made from natural, untreated and recycled timber, for the smallest environmental footprint possible.
