Choosing a Resource for Playground Mulch and Other Supplies

When creating a safe play environment for children at home, in public, or at school, playground mulch is among the key ingredients for a successful project. Bare ground is not a soft surface, and the spills and falls children at play often experience may put them at risk of injury. Covering the ground with a softer mulch creates both aesthetic and improves safety. At Canberra Sand and Gravel, we offer an excellent resource for obtaining the mulch appropriate for your application.

A Short Buyer’s Guide to Tree Mulch in Canberra

Spreading mulch is a common application, but it is often deceptively simple. If you’ve never handled this task before, it might surprise you to learn how many different types of mulch there are and how much you must consider to achieve adequate coverage. Consult our quick buyer’s guide for some tips on making a start:

  • Choose the appropriate type of mulch for the application you have in mind. Not every type of mulch is suitable for the same uses. For example, only certain kinds of mulch are ideal for use on playgrounds, where it is meant to be a “soft fall” surface for children at play. Tan bark and certified playground mulch exhibit the appropriate composition for a softer surface without sharp edges. Other products we make available in Canberra include organic mulch more suitable for garden usage.
  • Consider the size of the mulched material. Too fine and you may trap too much water for a given surface. Too large and you may not enjoy the results you expected, such as preventing weed growth or reducing the environmental stresses on a plan. When in doubt, contact the CSG team for insight into which of our products would suit your needs best.
  • Ensure that you have taken the proper steps to understand the quantity of tan bark you need for a given area of your garden or the playground you must maintain.

Problems You Can Solve Using Mushroom Compost in Canberra

At CSG, mulch for playgrounds is only the start of what we provide for our clients. We’re also adept at supplying overfill materials, especially for those gardening or even farming in the region. For example, we supply several types of compost, including a blend made of mushrooms. With this product, you can:

  • Improve soil that does not have the rich nutrients necessary to support the growth of fungi. Mushrooms are unique organisms that require a fair amount of organic matter to consume and grow. Our compost mixture has an appropriate blend of materials to promote growth under the right conditions.
  • Rebalance the soil’s pH to make the environment friendlier to plants and fungal growth. Always check the soil pH before adding additional compost. When you detect a reading that is out of bounds for the plants you hope to grow, spreading and mixing in some of our compost in Canberra may yield beneficial results.
  • Prevent water from prematurely draining away from the garden bed where you plan to do your growing. The appropriate moisture content is essential for stimulating the growth of mushrooms, particularly certain varieties that demand a wetter environment. Mushroom compost, combined with mulch when and where appropriate, helps to improve the bed’s water retention capabilities. Do more with less water.
