EarthBox® Mulch Cover
One of the key secrets to your EarthBox® container gardening success is the EarthBox® Mulch Cover! In addition to keeping unwanted weeds out, the EarthBox® Mulch Cover helps conserve water and keep nutrients in, all while insulating your container gardening system and protecting it against the elements. Made from durable agricultural film, it's one of the most important elements of the EarthBox® gardening system.
The EarthBox® Mulch Cover serves several critical functions to control and protect the system's environment:
- Keeps rain out of the growing media to prevent crucial nutrients from being washed away
- Prevents evaporation and conserves water
- Stops weeds from transplanting in the system; which would otherwise compete for space, water, and nutrients against your plants
- Helps deter insects and other pests from burrowing or digging in the growing media
- Depending on the climate and which color is face up, the mulch cover helps to attract or reflect sunlight. This assists in controlling the temperature of the growing media. Use the white side up in hot, dry climates to prevent young seedlings from dying; or in contrast, help warm the soil to stimulate growth by using the black side up in cooler climates
Black & White Reversible Cover
- White side for use in climates with sustained temperatures over 85° F during growing season
- Black side for use in cooler climates
Red Mulch Cover
- In some studies, red mulch has been shown to increase tomato and strawberry production by 12-20%. The red mulch cover reflects sunlight rays to the plant, in turn speeding up the growing process.
Once in use, all mulch covers last an entire growing season. Each mulch cover is sized according to the growing system. Choose your mulch cover based on your climate. The Original EarthBox® Mulch Covers will fit both 1st and 2nd generation models. Sold per cover.
