How to use MulchMax®?

Spring and early summer are the best times to mulch, however, if your focus is weed suppression, don’t wait, do it now.

To lock in moisture, water well before you mulch or mulch after rain.

Spread your MulchMax® evenly on top of your soil; 8 – 10cm is a good layer. For weed suppression, you want a denser layer of 10 – 15cm.

Keep MulchMax® away from tree trunks, so air can circulate. Most other plants are happy to have mulch tucked all around them.

MulchMax® decomposes and feeds your plants so you’ll need a light top-up every 6 – 12 months.

How much MulchMax® do you need?

MulchMax® is sold in cubic metres (m3). The amount you need depends on the size of the area you need to cover.

Here’s how:

  1. Measure the length and width of all areas you plan to cover in metres.
  2. For each area, multiply the length by the width. Add all areas together to get the total square meterage (m2).
  3. Multiply the total m2 by the thickness in centimetres you plan to spread the mulch. (For areas with significant weeds, use 10 to 15 centimetres. For other areas, 8 – 10 centimetres is a good layer.
  4. Divide the number you get in step 3 by 1000 to get the m3 required.

Here’s an example:

  1. You have two garden beds, one is 3 by 4 metres, and the other is 12 by 3 metres. Your total is 48m2 (3×4 plus 12×3).
  2. You are spreading mulch 10cm deep; 48m2 x 10cm = 480.
  3. Divide 480 by 1000, which equals 0.48. You need 0.48M3, approximately half a cubic metre (0.5m3).
