ALFA-MULCH organic soil shield is a multi-use, premium soil covering designed to achieve the following goals:
It is suitable for use on plants Indoors and Outdoors and, although designed to work with our GRO-DIRT living organic soil range, it works very well with any organic soil and grow media, even Coco based systems.
So why mulch? Well If you aren't using mulch when growing organically your plants aren't getting the full spectrum of what is available to them.
Mulching prevents the top layer of soil from drying out, this means it stays productive and full of beneficial microbes that in turn feed your plants. The top few inches of soil is a critical spot for the surface roots of your plants so keeping it healthy is of great importance.
By using a rich organic soil (such as our premium GRO-DIRT) with a top layer that is actively breaking down, we can get as close to optimal, natural conditions as possible.
As an obvious benefit it reduces watering frequency saving you time.
