Mulching soil using a blower

Mulching the soil is an operation to be carried out regularly in the garden. This is usually done in two ways: by hand or with a blower. We will focus on this second option which can be particularly interesting.

What does mulching consist of?

In order to preserve the quality of the soil, it is important to regularly cover it with organic, mineral or plastic materials. This is mulching. This technique consists of putting a layer of straw or other natural residue on the ground. This will enrich it with nutrients for plants and protect it from the cold. Mulching is also called mulching.

It is possible to apply this technique anywhere in your garden. Whether in the vegetable garden, the orchard, at the foot of trees, shrubs, young hedges as well as in beds of perennial plants, mulching the soil will only do your plants good.

When pouring mulch on the ground, you should take a few precautions:

  • Limit watering by keeping the soil moist;
  • Limit the development of weeds;
  • Create a place conducive to beneficial insects;
  • Keep your fruits and vegetables clean, avoiding direct contact with the earth;
  • Feed the soil.

How does mulching with a blower work?

Mulch blowing involves using a blower to disperse mulch on the ground. This is a diesel engine machine mounted in a specific truck and which will project the mulch via a pneumatic hose.

The pipe is fed with mulch through an airlock system and the blower will quickly suck up the mulch, transport it through the pipe until propelling it to the area where it needs to be dispersed.

There are different models of blowers which differ according to their size, their blowing power and the flow rate of mulch they can project. Generally, it is possible to control the blowing speed in order to better control the precision.

Why use a blower?

Usually, mulching is done manually. However, using a blowing system can show various advantages.

Time saving

Manual mulching can be time-consuming and tiring, as you have to load the mulch yourself into a wheelbarrow, then disperse it little by little, and then spread it properly. The blower completes these steps in no time, saving you time and avoiding fatigue.

A practical and modern solution

The use of machines is increasingly recommended given the practical and modern side. Whatever mulch you want to use, the blower can be an effective ally. In addition, mulching is an essential step for the quality of your soil, but tedious. This technique using a blower makes your job much easier.

A practical technique for large areas to cover

The use of a blower is very common when it comes to covering a large area of ​​ground. Speed, precision and efficiency are necessary to properly protect the floor. It is for this reason that farmers generally use a blower. In the case of a small vegetable garden, manual mulching can do the trick.
