Imagine never having to mulch again...

GROW MULCH RIGHT WHERE YOU NEED IT

How much do you spend on mulch every year to watch it disappear and need replacing?

You’re better off using a mulching machine! It's not a robot. It's more sophisticated AND costs a lot less. No microchips and electronics. 100% renewable construction and 100% biodegradable. You don't even have to buy mulch for it!  It works 24/7 - making mulch right where you need it!

What is this amazing machine? ...

Living mulch - a mixture of perennial and other ground cover plants growing mulch right where you need it  - under fruit trees, shrubs, vine crops, even with veggies. Living mulch is:

  1. Cheaper and less back-breaking than spreading mulch
  2. Reduces weed issues producing a thick ground cover of living plants and mulch from the dead leaves and stems
  3. Less fire-prone
  4. More eco-logical!

Compared to our sporadic mulch applications, living mulch provides a more consistent and generous food supply of organic materials and root exudates for the soil organisms maintaining our soil infrastructure and nutrient recycling system.

This handbook walks you through a series of straightforward, tried and tested steps to prepare your site and select species producing a dense ground cover. The handbook is 100% focused on helping you achieve practical outcomes – saving you the time and trouble of finding your own way.

Benefits of Living Mulch for you...

How much do you spend on mulch every year?

With bales retailing at $30-35, many families spend over $100/year keeping back gardens mulched. For market and community gardeners, the costs are substantially higher.

On our farm, I spent over $1,000 and about four weeks every year getting hot and dusty spreading mulch...

Now I use my time more constructively!

Benefits of Living Mulch for your soil ecosystem...

Mulch improves the functioning of our soil ecosystem. But we now know that mulch and other above-ground sources of organic materials have a limited effect on our soil's organic matter levels. That's why mulch has the annoying habit of disappearing so quickly!

By growing living mulch, we supply the roots and root exudates needed to increase organic matter levels in our soil.

Living mulch also creates a mini-ecosystem: a diversity of ground cover plants providing habitat and food for insects and birds; mulch for beetles, earthworms and other detritivores.
