Zanker Recycling can supply rolled recycled cardboard for your sheet mulching requirements. Sheet Mulching is a layered mulching system that is simple technique for optimizing the benefits of mulch and nurturing the soil.
Sheet mulching can be used either in establishing landscape, or to enrich existing plantings. In both cases, mulch is applied to bare soil or on top of cut or flattened weeds.
Trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and annuals are planted through the mulch, or a small area is left open to accommodate established plants.
Sheet mulch can:
- Suppress weed growth
- Reduce labor and maintenance costs: weeds are composted in place
- Improve nutrient and water retention in the soil
- Encourage favorable soil microbial activity and worms
- Enhance soil structure
- Improve plant vigor and health, often leading to improved resistance to pests and diseases.
