Grass Mulch – 1 Gallon Bag
Grass mulch is a fantastic way to bring new life to plants with fantastic mulch that helps keep moisture around the roots of the plants. This mulch is very organic and is created using the grass clippings after a lawn is mowed. It is very affordable and sometimes can even be free when the lawns grass is high enough. It is piled up and dried out so that is can create a beautiful look around shrubs and trees and also when added to flower gardens. It gives a very natural look as it is attached and also decomposes very quickly so that it supplies nutrients back into the soil so that it can become rich for perennials that may be located in flower gardens. It is available in one-gallon bags and is conveniently shipped from this online nursery for natural distribution by homeowners or gardeners. This is a beautiful type of mulch and is very natural.
Mulching is a very powerful gardening tool. Mulching can include any of the removed plant material from a garden. This can help benefit the nutrient cycle in the garden because the nutrients that the plants hold will be returned to the soil. The initial removal of dead and dying plant material also helps the soil by not removing nutrients from the soil to feed plants that are dying. This is a dual fold investment on mulching. Types of mulch can include shredded tree leaves, bark, chaff, sawdust, buckwheat hulls, peanut hulls, cocoa, and wheat straw.
Mulch can be easily collected during normal lawn care and is why it’s such an effective tool. Most of the mulching work will be done by natural metabolic processes so the mulch can be simply added to the sod. Using fresh clippings is beneficial because it cools the root zone, conserves moisture, and will add back a quarter of the nutrients back into the soil. As grass grows it takes and reserves nutrients, by adding the nutrient-rich grass back to the sod, the nutrient cycle is completed, giving higher yield growth to your garden.
Fresh or dried clippings can be used for mulch. When preparing fresh clippings only a quarter inch thick layer is needed. This is to prevent the underlying grass from breaking down and rotting. Thicker layers of fresh clippings will be much to wet and can produce mold and cause grass to decay. With dry clippings, you can use thicker layers and is best used for vegetable crops since these have a higher nutrient requirement. The season of the grass is also important. The Late fall and early spring grass clippings are the most nutritious for your growing plants. These can be layered or mixed into the soil going 8 inches deep. This method adds more nitrogen in a ratio of two parts of carbon to one part nitrogen. Carbon is good for aerating the soil and introducing oxygen for bacteria to do their metabolic magic. Mulching with grass is a great alternative to purchasing other lawn care products from your local home improvement store.
