The Paper Eliminates Weeds & Itself

Innovative paper mulch is environmentally sustainable, natural weed control. It is a 100% biodegradable paper mulch that decomposes at the end of the season and then can be ‘worked in’ to the soil. The material effectively eliminates weeds by blocking light, reduces erosion, moderates soil temperatures and can become part of the soil after the growing season. It is popular with no-dig gardening. It is totally porous and allows water, air and nutrients to pass through, whilst being durable to withstand heavy rain. Organic paper mulch is the environmentally sound and acceptable replacement for traditional plastic ground covers. Or if you don't have the time to collect lots of cardboard. 

The paper is a matting material made from all natural, cellulose fibres. Unlike synthetic weed barriers the paper is composed of eco-effective, renewable resources and negates the need for herbicides and pesticides.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long does the paper mulch last?

A. The heavyweight paper is engineered to gradually decompose and last one growing season - about 12 months. Any remaining Mulch Organic can be tilled or ploughed into the soil at the end of the growing season. Or simply left in the soil to do its thing.

Q. What is it made from?

A. The paper is specially engineered and made from 100% cellulose fibres. It's natural formulation does not contain any harmful chemicals.

Q. How does it block weeds?

A. The paper is 100% opaque - no light gets through the material, so weeds cannot get light and cannot grow.

Q. If Mulch Organic s is opaque and blocks light and weeds, how does water get to the soil and plants below?

A. It has unique, microscopic holes for excellent porosity which permits air and water transmission.

Q. Mulch Organic allows water and air to transmit through it, so why doesn't it fall apart when it gets wet?

A. The paper is specially designed with a wet-strength component that keeps the material together when it gets wet. It can withstand torrential rains. The wet-strength component is FDA approved.


Q. Why is Mulch Organic brown in colour?

A. The paper is soil-brown in colour to be aesthetically appealing. This darker colour also can absorb sunlight and convert this light to heat which can warm the soil, aiding earlier plant development.

Q. How thick is the material?

A. The heavyweight paper is fairly thick (like a business card) but is pliable too. Unlike plastics, the paper can be cut with scissors to irregular shapes for custom fitting to your garden layout.
