Ask RiotACT
Hi Rioters.

I’m looking to put mulch throughout my garden. I did a quick search and there appears to be a lot of variety and a lot of price variations.

I’d love any recommendations you have on what type to use, where to buy, and the best time of year to apply it?

Whatever you decide to buy insist that if it is delivered with any rubbish in it you will send it back. The last truckload of forest litter I bought locally was liberally mixed with shredded plastic pipes, shoes, underwear and other household rubbish.
So much for the “independent quality control” they advertise.

You will get weed with sugar cane mulch too.
