Hemp Mulch is an ideal choice for preventing weeds and keeping soil insulated from hot and cold weather, especially in the vegetable garden. It absorbs up to 50% more water than wood chip mulch. Hemp Mulch is pH neutral, free from harmful chemicals and is a sustainable resource. Once the growing season is done, Hemp Mulch can be incorporated into the soil where it will break down and provide soil aeration. We recommend wearing gloves when applying new mulch. Bag contains 33 lbs. of mulch.
