Mulch acts like a protective blanket. Best added before summer, it helps keep soil cool and reduces water loss through evaporation. Perth summer conditions are harsh - Coarse mulches, with larger particles to allow water penetration between them, are the best to use.
While mulches can be inorganic (eg. rocks/pebbles), organic mulches (eg. tree prunings/straw) which eventually break down and add organic matter to the soil are ultimately more beneficial to long term soil improvement.
Sandy soils benefit from a thicker application. Heavy, clay soils perhaps don't need so much. The 'right amount' usually varies from 50 - 150mm, depending on your garden. Avoid mulching directly around stems of plants & trunks of trees to avoid stem rot. Try to avoid compacting mulch once it's laid down. Raking mulch at 4 - 6 month intervals will rejuvenate garden beds and allow aeration to plant roots. After 12 months, or as the mulch breaks down, it will be necessary to top dress with another layer of new mulch. Spring or early summer is the best time to do this.

Please note Economulch mulch are a RECYCLED product - made from recycled, aged and composted council green waste. Unfortunately because waste isn't always separated as well as it should be, sometimes small bits of inert waste (eg. wire, plastic, rubble and occasionally glass) can slip through the manufacturing process and be found in our end product. We do our best to eliminate any contaminants during our mixing & loading procedure. Should you feel this is an issue for you, please contact us to discuss. Please be assured these inert materials do not affect the mulches performance.Using recycled product (which passes organic and other compost quality standards) means that waste is saved from landfill and is an environmentally sound practice.
