Make-shift Drip Irrigation Project-Pt 9- ECCO Chips Mulch

ECCO Chips mulch is now spread throughout the shrub beds to cover over top of the drip irrigation lines. The ECCO Chips come in a variety of colours and are available for sale in the Regina area.

Adding mulch to your beds, esspecially in beds where you have drip irrigation has a number of benefits:

  1. It makes the bed more aesthetically pleasing to look at by adding colour and covering up the drip irrigation lines.
  2. The mulch helps hold the moisture in longer, which means that your watering will be more effective.
  3. If you apply the proper level of mulch, it will block sunlight from getting to the weeds, keeping them down (for the most part).
