Mulch - Gold for the gardener
Mulching - conservation of soil
Bigger + better plants = more food!
Life on Earth depends on plants + food!
Mulch is like gold in the hands
of every gardener!
Mulching materialscan be organic or inorganic.
Bear Springs Blossom Nature preserve produces its own mulch from chipping overgrowth junipers. Our solution for fighting erosion and bringing back top soil is Mulching.
This was the look of our property, when we bought it - no mulch - high erosion - no soil
We enrich and protect the ground with juniper mulch, helping provide a better growing environment.
This was the look of our property one year later, after spreading juniper mulch every 3 month in a thin layer - with mulch - low erosion - soil building
Mulching is one of the simplest and most beneficial practices you can use on your property.
There are different kind of mulches: organic or inorganic
Benefits of mulches:
Protecting of over heating
Nice to walk on, good smell
Our Juniper mulch also improves the pH of our caliche soils.
Juniper mulch has a pH of 5 while our 'soils" of far above pH 8.
Most plants do not like extremes, so spreading a thin layer of juniper mulch, reduces the pH of our alkaline soil and
helps native plants to grow.
When our mulch slowly decomposes, it provides organic matter. Roots can grow better, more water can be stored and slowly released in the ground, and it helps earthworms and other beneficial soil organisms to balance our environment.
At our Nature Preserve in the Texas Hill County
we bought a road built by Bandera County
This was the look of the road, when we bought it - no mulch - high erosion - dangerous to drive on
This was the look of the former county road
2 years later - mulched - low erosion - re-naturated
Our sun produces bio matter
Make mulch out of overgrowth..
