Mulch a great way to con­trol weeds

Manawatu Guardian - - SERVICES DIRECTORY -

It’s not a well-kept se­cret that us­ing Me­gaMulch will keep the weeds at bay.

For 15 years Vaughan and Lynette Cru­den have been brew­ing their qual­ity mulch at Napier Road and pro­vid­ing home de­liv­ery to canny gar­den­ers in the know.

“It’s re­ally easy,” says Vaughan, who is a qual­i­fied hor­ti­cul­tur­ist and ar­borist.

“You just put it on at least 10cm thick and it smoth­ers the weeds.

“It also lasts at least a cou­ple of years, even­tu­ally break­ing down and con­tin­u­ing to feed the gar­den.”

It gives any gar­den sit­u­a­tion a nat­u­ral look and can also be dug in to help new gar­dens get a good start.

Their trucks Snowflake and Tur­tle (al­ways last off the lights) give gar­den­ers the op­tion of 5m3 or 10m3 de­liv­er­ies, with a 3m3 min­i­mum.

“We re­alise that gar­dens, and peo­ples time are de­creas­ing so Me­gaMulch of­fers a great op­tion, vis­ually and much less work,” Vaughan says.

“Our chil­dren have got their own prop­er­ties now and it’s great to be able to share the knowl­edge.”

Vaughan is al­ways happy to talk to new and older gen­er­a­tion gar­den­ers about any gar­den­ing or tree is­sues.

“It’s a great time to get weed­free with Me­gaMulch at present with a cur­rent offer of 1m3 free for every 4m3 pur­chased. The web­site has a handy cal­cu­la­tor to work out what you need.”
