Whenever the perfect laws of balance are applied, there’s no such things as waste. Such are the ways of Nature – the master of energy transfer. Luckily, we humans, as part of nature, are able to learn her ways and apply them in all aspects of life. Hence, the invention of mulchers. With the help of this apparatus, gardeners are able to collect all the organic debris such as grass clippings, fallen branches, pinecones and acorns and put them back to use.
Buying a mucher is a little bit like buying good karma for yourself cause by using it, you’ll not only be putting the nutrients of the organic debris into use, but you’ll also get to save on expensive fertilizers. What’s more costly fertilizers are considered to do more damage than good sometimes. Saving nature and saving money you say? Count me in!
Before including a mulcher in your garden tools, you must become familiar with some of the features and specifications so that you know you’re getting exactly what you need.
The first factor to consider is size because size can make a difference when it comes to the specific purpose mulchers are used for. Small mulchers are used for grounding up lawn clippings, leaves and other debris that comes in small amounts. This is what makes these models most suitable for home gardens. Large, truck mounted units, on the other hand, are used for collecting large and solid debris in the form of branches, trunks, brush and tree limbs. These models are the choice for farms or very large gardens.
Another feature that divides mulchers in two models is the way they get powered. There are gas-powered and electric mulchers and they differ in several aspects. Gas-powered ones have all the power you might ask for, they are portable and can handle heavy grinding. However, they are not very environmentally friendly. Electric ones, on the other hand, are quieter, easier to maintain and friendly to the environment and to your neighbors too because they are very quiet.
Once you’re done deciding which type is most suitable for you, you are ready to begin fertilizing the soil on your own, the cost and chemicals free way. When the soil is enriched in this manner, the plants that feed from its nutrients become naturally stronger and more resistant to diseases. So you’ll be getting rid of pesky weeds while preparing a super food for the plants you want to see thrive!
