    Garden Fertilizing & Mulching

    There is simply no better way to bring life to a landscape than with beautifully planned flower and garden beds. Whether planted along a foundation wall, fence line, patio, front porch, retaining wall or pathway – they offer gorgeous bursts of colour that can also turn your garden into a scented paradise.

    There is no hard and fast rule to maintaining a flower or garden bed because there are just too many different flowers with wildly different needs. But two things that every proper garden maintenance plan includes is proper fertilisation and mulching.


    In order to regularly produce colourful blossoms, flowers and other garden plants need water and sun. But they also need a high-quality plant food or fertiliser that contains a blend of three essential nutrients: nitrogen for vibrant leaves, phosphorus for flower production and potassium for root growth.


    For the average property owner, it is easy to believe that mulching and fertilising a garden bed is the same thing. While mulch contributes to the fertilisation of your plants and flowers, it is not actually the main reason why people add it to their garden and flower beds.

    Mulching serves four very different purposes. The first is that it makes your garden look neater. It also insulates your soil against drastic temperature fluctuations, such as ground freezes that occur in winter. And it prevents moisture evaporating from your soil, which is essential in Australia where water is precious. Lastly, it helps to prevent the growth of weeds.
