  2. Improved cation exchange capacity(CEC), resulting in greater uptake of nutrients
  3. Energises tired and poor performing soil
  4. Increased water holding capacity, leading to increased water uptake during dry periods

Enrich Environmental - Products - Fine Grade Mulch

The fine structure of the material means it knits together to form a blanket over the soil surface which is not blown away. The absence of any white timber provides an ideal backdrop, against which the full colour and vigour plants can be seen. The low Carbon to Nitrogen prevents nitrogen deficiencies associated with the use of fresh bark. How to use Apply a layer 8-10cm thick over the surface of the planted area.
