Our clever, compostable Mulch Mats made from recycled jute coffee sacks fit neatly into pots or directly onto beds to protect plants. The Chimney Sheep Mulch Mats keep plants protected and help them to grow by reducing water evaporation, creating a natural barrier against weeds, reducing competition for water and nutrients, reducing temperature fluctuations of the soil and roots, providing nutrients for the plants as they compost down and helping to deter greedy slugs and snails. They come in a range of sizes and shapes, depending on your needs. These Mulch Mats will last 1-2 years (depending on the conditions) before they have rotted down completely so are lovely and long-lasting. We like them because they are dense so sit firmly on the ground and don’t need pegging down, unlike the polypropylene versions. We just slot them around a plant and leave the mats to do their thing. Easy peasy!
