Understanding Mulch and Its Benefits

Mulch is a layer of organic or inorganic material that is spread over the soil surface to enhance the health and productivity of your garden. It offers a variety of benefits, including moisture retention, soil temperature regulation, weed suppression, and the addition of organic matter to improve soil structure.


Choosing the Right Mulch

The first step in efficiently using mulch is choosing the right type for your garden. At Triple Five, we offer a variety of mulch options. Organic mulch options such as bark, wood chips, or compost can be decomposed by soil organisms, enriching your soil with nutrients. In contrast, inorganic mulch options like gravel or landscape fabric are more suited for controlling weeds and conserving water.


When to Apply Mulch

Timing is key when it comes to mulching. The best time to apply mulch in British Columbia is in the spring, after the soil has warmed up, and in the fall to insulate the soil over the winter. However, mulch can be applied at any time to suppress weeds and lock in moisture.


Applying the Mulch

Once your bulk bag mulch has been delivered by Triple Five, you can start applying it. Spread a layer of mulch around your plants and over the soil. The recommended depth of the layer depends on the type of mulch but is usually between two and four inches. Make sure not to pile mulch against the stems of plants or the trunks of trees, as it can cause decay.



Even after applying mulch, it's essential to maintain it. This may involve adding more mulch to keep the layer at its recommended thickness, or turning the mulch to allow air and water to reach the soil beneath. For organic mulch, you'll need to replenish it as it decomposes and adds nutrients to your soil.


Considerations for Bulk Mulch

Opting for bulk bag mulch delivery is not only cost-effective but is also an environmentally friendly choice. At Triple Five, our bulk delivery reduces the use of plastic bags, aligning with the sustainable values of many gardeners in British Columbia.
