MULCHEO® Natural is spruce wood chip, exclusively derived from the forests of Vosges. It does not contain any recycled waste. MULCHEO® was developed to protect and highlight small plants in gardens. Its perfect calibrated size decorates landscapes and makes them look clean for years.
Selected logs are first crushed then sieved and graded into 4 - 10 mm wood chips. After this process the particles are heated and are dried to eliminate any pathogenic risk. The particles are then mineralized to provide high quality and long-lasting properties. Its life expectancy is 3 to 5 years.
