Our quality eucalyptus mulch is perfect for native and general landscapes, slopes and embankments, saving water, reducing weeds and regulating soil temperature. This mulch contains a large proportion of fines and gives a deep, dark brown colour to your landscape.
Some gardeners seek out eucalyptus mulch around prized plants in hopes that it will be toxic to pests and to weeds. This is because eucalyptus trees are among a group of plants that contain the compounds known as allelochemicals, which have negative effects on some other living things. Theoretically, if mulch from eucalyptus bark and lumber is put around mature plants, the mulch will prevent weed seedlings from growing while also repelling predatory insects. The toxicity from such mulch is relatively short-lived.
