Organic Soil

There are many different types of soil throughout Australia, ranging from dry and sandy Tenosol which is largely infertile to rich dark Dermosol which retain adequate water and have good agricultural potential.  Soil may be too acidic, too alkaline, too saturated with minerals, too dry, too damp and too deficient of minerals to be any good for agriculture.  But each of these soils may be improved by breaking them up with organic matter.  With organic matter, found in varying quantities in all soils, comes a host of micro-organisms.  For this reason, it is an offence to take soil from one state to another in Australia.

So-called Organic Soil is simply soil which has been enhanced with organic matter in order to build up an ecosystem which is not reliant on chemicals for plant growth, weed control or as a pesticide.  As organic soil is being built over time, a positive relationship develops between micro-organisms in the soil, vegetation and insects.  An eco-system is established, allowing earthworms and other insects to thrive, which in turn provides nutrition to the plant life so that they grow hardy and resistant to diseases.  The long term benefit for vegetation grown in organic soil is considerable.

Organic soil building never ends and is infinitely sustainable.  It is a continuous cycle of adding compost to the soil, turning it and allowing it to be fallow.  Organic matter may easily be added to the soil where a composting system has been established in the garden.  Household kitchen and yard waste can easily be converted to nutritious fertiliser for the soil.  Composting with worms gives the added benefit of worm excrement to the mix.

If you are concerned about the worldwide conservation of our natural resources and the addition of chemicals to plants which you will eat, then you are probably already buying food products labelled organically grown.  Why not extend your concern to your own backyard?  Your garden, be it fruit bearing or not, will benefit from the establishment of an ecosystem devoid of chemicals.

When trees and bushes are pruned, mulch the off-cuts and use them to cover areas of the garden which are prone to weeds or become quickly dried out.  Set up a compost heap and a worm farm.  Read up on the plants in your garden, and find out how best to care for them naturally.  Having and maintaining an organic garden requires some education, initially, but it is well worth the effort.

Looking for regular mulch deliveries?

We are looking for people that will accept large mulch deliveries on a regular basis. Each load can range between 8-18 cubic metres. We can do multiple deliveries and sometimes we have several trucks working and can easily deliver 20 cubic metres in a day.

18 cubic metres will cost approximately $200 delivered. If you required the mulch to be spread across the garden we can do and we would have to quote depending on the landscape and size of the task. The mulch is basically free, our labour is not. Contact us today for more information.

Palm mulch for rose gardens!

Did you know that palm mulch is perfect for rose beds? The acidity is just right in the fibrous mulch and it holds a good amount of water making it perfect for your rose beds. You can use other types of mulch but from our experience they are less effective than palm mulch. According to the Queensland Rose Society rose beds need to be kept well mulched. They recommend Lucerne hay, straw, grass clippings, old dry cow manure or wood chips. They make a point to mention that pine back should NOT be used… ever. They neglect to mention palm mulch. Maybe this is because palm mulch cannot be bought in stores or at a nursery – it has to be delivered fresh from your local aborist. Contact us today and organise a delivery of some palm mulch, it is a lot less expensive than you might think!

Mulch grades for your garden

A great option for your garden is mulch. As an organic compound they will break down over time releasing nutrients into your garden. Different mulches can be made of denser material it takes longer to break down reducing the frequency of mulch application. Mulches come in a range of grades – from fine through medium, and course. The best grade of mulch to use is course as it doesn’t readily absorb any moisture allowing more water to penetrate into the soil. The finer mulches act like a sponge and absorb the moisture, often leading to a seed bed for weeds.

The arbor mulch we produce and sell for a nominal cost is course in type and has bark components to it. The type of mulch varies depending on the tree being removed on the day but is always excellent quality. Contact us today if you’re interested in receiving regular deliveries of mulch.
