Mulching  

Mulching is a low maintenance gardening process that takes some time to apply, but  which greatly reduces work in the long term. 

mulch_beds_03.png (188532 bytes) Mulching is a nature's way to cover  the soil (Leaves, Sand, Grass,) are all mulches.   Nature covers the soil with any material to feed the soil, stop weed invasion, conserve moisture, improve fertility, moderate soil temperature and provide food to plants and worms.
mulch_beds_02.png (207524 bytes) Mulching uses any garden waste to cover the soil, as long as the material is weed free. (no hay).  Seeds and plants can be sown on Mulches, both will grow quicker.  Sadly Mulch in not suitable for annuals or vegetables when it has been freshly laid.  Peat is not suitable as it sometimes contains weeds.
wal_and_team.png (73395 bytes) We use newspapers and old rotting straw.  Level & drain the soil, (if  required) spread the papers overlap by 30cm in Mulching is a low maintenance gardening process that takes some time to apply, but  which greatly reduces work in the long term. 
Primrose_mulch_beds_01.png (212006 bytes) We put old rotting straw on the newspapers and fresh straw over the top.   Spread the old rotting straw over to 10cm on  the Mulch.   Plant on top of the straw.   Trees and shrubs, any woody plant can be planted before spreading the  newspapers.   Perennials can be planted above the papers. Soon the roots reach down to the wet paper. 
"I will host much more (by 2003) on low on low maintenance gardening and Mulching when I process 22 years of research, case study, photographs and experience that I have accumulated. Some or the research was E.U. funded, one large project was for a Bark Mulch firm (research on every use in an Irish Garden) but most my own experience."  Sandro
