Why Mulch?


Conserve Water

By reducing evaporation due to sun and wind.

Suppress Weed Growth

By keeping the soil cool and moist and depriving weeds of light.

Encourage Microbial Life

By leaching beneficial nutrients into the soil and teeming with beneficial plant microbes.

The Facts about Mulch

Lucerne and pea straw mulch is organic, natural, and weeds and feeds in one operation. It is the key to a low maintenance garden. Mulching most importantly saves our most precious resource, water.

What They Say About Us

We came across a local family business through social media selling garden mulch and were absolutely excited to be able to purchase Lucerne for our gardens. There’s lots of different kinds of mulch you can use but we find Lucerne to be the best for many reasons. It provides many important minerals for healthy plants & soils, increases soil nitrogen, suppression of weeds, conserves moisture and stimulates healthy root growth. We find Rich River Garden Mulch value for money & is a superior product. They are professional, prompt, super friendly and community minded. We wouldn’t consider going anywhere else for our mulching needs.

Lucerne Mulch

Lucerne (alfalfa) is an outstanding mulch. It is very nutritious and is one of the few mulches which breaks down quickly adding substantial nitrogen to the soil.

Pea Straw Mulch

Pea straw is ideal for the home gardener to use in the vegetable garden, around fruit trees, shrubs and roses. Is a natural soft product that nourishes and conditions the soil.
