Protection from Acid Rain
Spread SweetPeet as mulch around the base of trees and shrubs to a thickness of 3 to 4 inches. Coverage should include all areas within the drip line of overhanging branches. Mulch should taper off near tree trunks or the shoots of shrubs so as not to come in contact with the bark. Repeat application once a year.
If mounding occurs after several years use, remove part of the previous application before re-applying fresh SweetPeet. When SweetPeet is used in this way it forms a protective barrier to absorb acid rain and gently neutralize it before it enters the root zone. When the drip line from trees or shrubs falls over an established lawn, follow the directions below for established lawns.
Sweet Peet Organic Mulch Eliminates Weeds
Soil organic matter enhances the soil biota, the microorganisms, that are so important to plant health but also Sweet Peet not only prevents weeds by smothering but its unique cat-ion exchange is inhospitable to surface weeds.
Sweet Peet Enriches Soil, Restores Gardens To Healthy, Vibrant Plants
Sweet Peet can be applied in winter or summer. Winter application protects the roots of young perennials and bulbs, while summer application retains soil moisture and limits weed seed germination.
Organic mulch, such as Sweet Peet, allows water to absorb easily into the ground, encouraging beneficial earthworms. It’s near neutral pH value helps in both acid and alkaline soils in maintaining the pH sweet spot to release locked up nutrients to the feeder roots of garden plants.
