NATURE  AS  A  MODEL  FOR  OUR  CULTIVATION

In nature soil contains roots and is covered, preserving soil fertility.

Soil Fertility

Soil Fertility

The organic soil cover provides soil organisms with protection and nutrition. The mulch layer protects the soil from erosion and reduces evaporation while allowing humus to be built up.

Nitrogen Uptake

Nitrogen Uptake

Mulch is an in-house fertilizer. Plants grow with their fine roots into the mulch layer and absorb nutrients there.

Weed Suppression

Weed Suppression

The mulch blanket suppresses all seed weeds with sufficient vigor, so that any mechanical weed control can be dispensed with. Root weeds, however, can pierce the mulch layer and must be removed.
