To reduce the ongoing maintenance costs of green spaces, weed matt or mulch should be applied. This is to suppress the weeds, provide surface protection, moisture retention and stabilization Evergreen Landcare has access to a wide range of mulches and weed mat solutions to suit the project requirements.
Mulch Supply and Spread
A good layer of mulch will provide many benefits to any green space. This includes suppressing weed growth, retaining moisture thus encouraging the plants to deepen their root system, reduce soil erosion, minimise the effect of sudden changes in temperature, improve soil structure also encouraging worms and organic bacteria.
Weather a project is large or small Evergreen can supply and spread the mulch in a cost-effective way whilst reducing ongoing maintenance costs. We have experienced teams that can mechanically spread mulch, and to blow mulch using a blower truck.
Blowing of mulch is a cost effective method to supply and spread mulch to steep or tight locations difficult to reach with machinery.
Our truck can hold up to 50m3 of mulch and blow mulch up to 60m through a hose.
Blowing in mulch is a great option to consider rather than using matting, which is sometimes the only other alternative. The benefits of natural mulch in terms of weed suppression, water retention and nutrients enhancement is far superior with natural mulch than engineered matting solutions.
Weed Mat Supply and Lay
Weed mats provide a barrier for weed seeds to germinate, reducing the need to use chemical or manual weed control methods. They also create a barrier between the sun and soil reducing evaporation and retaining soil moisture. The use of weed mats is also an integral temporary erosion control method on large projects to protect uncompleted areas from heave rain events preventing washouts and slips from occurring.
Our team of trained staff can efficiently and effectively install weed matting to a project for both green spaces and erosion control.
