Mulch plays an important role in every garden, especially over summer. A groundcover such as mulch will aid in protecting the soil from exposure and erosion while also helping to inhibit weed growth. At Sunshine Coast Mowers, we have a great range of mulching equipment and tools to clean up your garden waste and help make the most of this natural groundcover before summer hits. But before we get into the different types of tools for mulching, let’s talk about what you need to consider before purchasing a machine, from Sunshine Coast Mowers

Make sure it’s easy to use.

When shopping for a mulcher or shredder at Sunshine Coast Mowers, ask our team to test how easy it is to manoeuvre and lift. A heavy model may be hard to use in rough terrain or over distance, so this is a good question to ask. If you have a simple and small backyard, our team can recommend the best mulching tool for this.

Ask if you need a plunger.

A plunger is a small paddle with a handle used to push the garden waste into the shredder, and helps to avoid any injury to your hands or fingers. Our team at Sunshine Coast Mowers can recommend if you will need a plunger, as well as some tips on how to safely use the mulching machine.

Consider a collection bag.

Collection bags are great if you are wanting to spread the mulch around the yard in preparation for summer. They also help to make gardening jobs less stressful and limit the amount of time cleaning up.

How big the branches are.

When investigating different models, consider the maximum branch thickness you're likely to be mulching, and make sure that the mulcher can handle that size. We can discuss this with you when purchasing a mulching machine at Sunshine Coast Mowers.
