Sawdust Mulch Has Many Garden Uses
Sawdust Mulch can be used to amend soil and prevent weeds from growing. By increasing the amount of organic matter in the soil, sawdust mulch is able to improve the soil's texture. The increase in organic matter can also help you grow organisms such as mushrooms, which rely on organic matter to support their growth.
Sawdust has an acidic composition and acidifies the soil that it is placed around as it decomposes. Sawdust mulch works best with plants that are acid-loving; plants such as blueberries and rhododendrons. The mulch will provide additional nutrients to the plants that they would otherwise not receive, or receive less of, with other mulches.
Aside from nutrient benefits, sawdust mulch has physical benefits as well. The mulch can prevent slugs from entering a garden by creating an additional barrier between the plant and animal. Additionally, due to its absorbent properties, sawdust mulch can absorb excess moisture in a garden.
Sawdust is not toxic to plants, despite popular belief. Sawdust, however, requires nitrogen to decompose properly and may draw nitrogen from the soil that your plants are rooted in. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the placement of your sawdust in addition to the amount that you use; consider applying extra nitrogen with the mulch.
