Vertical Mulching

What is it?

Vertical Mulching is the application of organic matter into the soil by means of bored holes.   

Soil Types

Soil Types vary from one place to the next, in  Athens, Georgia we find lots of clay and little organic matter.  This is when Vertical Mulching can be most beneficial to Trees, Shrubs and the Watershed.

All plant roots need: water, nutrients and oxygen. Poor soils restrict plant growth and health. Also see more info at Athens-Clarke County Community Tree Program.
