Now is the ideal time to apply a bark mulch to beds and borders before plants get too large and whilst there is still moisture in the soil.
Applying a thick layer of bark to a depth of 50mm will inhibit weed growth, reduce moisture loss and insulate plant roots. A covering of bark reduces light so preventing germination of many weed seeds and fewer weeds provide less competition for available moisture and nutrients. Using bark to control weeds is also safer than applying herbicides.
Bark is one of the secret weapons of water conservation in the garden. The appropriate use of bark mulch in the garden can help plants through the drier summer months by preventing the majority of water loss by evaporation from the soil. It also adds organic matter to the soil and helps prevent erosion.
