    Comments about : Mulch Block:

    I first bought this to put mulch in a small raised bed garden, but then realized it would be great for pots. Every time I place an order with Gardener's I add 2 cubes to my order because I have so many pots and small garden spaces where conventional mulch just doesn't make any sense.

      I have a shoulder issue so I'm always looking for light weight options. This one worked well for me. As a bonus, the color and texture are quite pleasing.

                  The mulch looks beautiful in my garden. The garden is on a bit of a slope, and has stayed put!

                    I used this along a walkway under azaleas, and camellias and ferns. It looks great, and really keeps the moisture up. We live in Cali and had an inch of rain (a lot for us) and this product didn't budge or wash out. Looks pretty too.

                          Comments about : Mulch Block:

                          I've tried all types of mulch at my place, and hated it all. Well, hate may be a strong word, but it never felt "right." I ordered this on the advice from a gardener friend primarily because I got a shoulder injury and can't lift heavy mulch and soil bags anymore. This stuff is LIGHT! It also stacks easily in a corner or out of the way. It IS a bit hard to crumble apart, so I'd suggest good leather gloves for that task. So far, I've put it around my ornamentals and it's remained where I put it with no shifting even in the heavy winds/rain we've had lately. It is contained in concrete pavers, but even so, it's better than the pine bark I usually use. My plan is to put a light layer around my vegetables then layer more if needed in a second spread. I don't want to alter my pH too much in the soil, so I'll monitor that. I also plan to put this down on the trackway between my raised beds. I think it will be quite nice for that in my 10X20 growing space. Pine bark just seemed to shift around too much down there, but the fibers of the coir seem to interlock almost like a mat, so I want to try it there. I would likely buy again if I needed it, and I've already recommended it to another friend with lifting issues.
