Every detail of a garden is important, including the garden mulch and plant soil. The soil provides the nutrients your plants need to grow and flourish. Some might say soil is the most important aspect of any garden.
When searching for garden soil you should consider the type of plant it is for and the container, or gardening area it will be used in. Speak to one of our experts to find out what type of soil you need for your space.
If you plan to have a potted plant, you should choose a light and airy soil – this is best for the plant and makes it easiest for you to move the entire container. For the best results, we suggest using potting soil or potting mix.
If you will be nurturing plants and flowers in a garden or landscape bed – commonly used for perennials, annuals, and shrubs – look into purchasing some organic matter. Garden soil also works well, you just might need to add some more nutrients to it as plants need quite a bit of nutrient to grow.
Garden mulch should be your next gardening step as it helps prevent weeds from growing in your garden bed. It comes in a variety of colors including black, brown, and red. Mulch will help provide nutrients and act as a protective layer. Types of mulch include straw, Pumice rock, pebble or gravel, wood chips, or you can use compost.
By keeping your garden cleaner, it makes continued maintenance much easier on you. Mulch also adds an extra protective layer over your soil which helps trap in moisture following irrigation or rainfall. This will not only give your plants more water, it might also improve the water retention of the plant leading to not needing to water quite as frequently.
From the plant or flower to the soil, to the mulch, and down to the gardening tools, each and every aspect of building your perfect garden and outdoor living space should be considered. Invest in some of TERRA Greenhouses high-quality products and tools to ensure the best results in your garden.
