Used in establishing new lawns, Penn Mulch is an excellent alternative to conventional "seed protection" methods like straw. Created in the labs at University of Pennsylvania, Penn Mulch pellets are made of recycled paper that breaks down naturally without robbing the soil of nutrients. Contains no weed seeds like Orchard Grass or Timothy which, once introduced into turf, cannot be selectively controlled.
Simply prepare your soil, sow your seed, and spread Penn Mulch over it and water. The pellets will expand, providing protective cover for your seed from Pests and harsh sunlight, while retaining the valuable moisture so essential to seed germination, which lessens YOUR watering frequency!
And unlike straw, Penn Mulch will not blow away into your neighbors pool, and does not need to be raked up and disposed of later.
Also contains a full rate of Starter Fertilizer mixed right in, so everything you need is applied in one easy application.
