Are you sick and tired of the constant onslaught of weeds in your garden? Doug’s Straw Pellet Mulch is made for you. A little sprinkling around each of your plants or entire bags spread across your entire beds, Doug’s Straw Pellet Mulch will ensure that only the strongest of the weeds can push through. Any weeds that do end up showing their true colors can easily be identified against the golden yellow mulch and quickly pulled.
Other mulch options like wood or bark mulch can have incredibly harmful effects on your garden. If the wood or bark mulch comes from a coniferous tree (think spruce or pine trees) then it will reduce the pH of your soil (make it more acidic) and could cause serious detriment to your vegetables.

Further problems arising from wood or bulk mulch are that many of the wood mulch products are made from recycled pallets and construction wood waste. The danger arises from the chemicals used to fumigate pallets if they crossed an international border or the chemicals used to preserve construction wood. All of these toxic chemicals will leach into your soil and into your food if you mulch your garden with this kind of wood mulch.
Using Doug’s Straw Pellet Mulch means you can have the weed control you want without the detrimental effects of the other options.
