What is Sheet Mulching?

Sheet Mulching is a

simple ecological method of lawn replacement ,as well as

an effective way to smother

undesirable weeds and grasses.

Sheetmulching composts the lawn

in-place and creates a

fertile, plantable area for new plants.

 


 

Sheet mulching is the application of layers of cardboard and organic materials

directly on top of the earth.

The "Sheet" is the Cardboard and

the "Mulch" is the Organic Material.

  For Lawn Removal, Sheet Mulching is used to smother the Lawn

by depriving the grass of light.

The lawn actually is not removed but decomposes under the mulch.

By leaving the organic matter

right where it is,

we eliminate the task of having

to pull the out and haul the lawn away and add organic matter for planting.

The existing lawn that is layered with organic materials, create a beautiful fertile planting bed made right there on top of the decomposed lawn.

Steps for Sheet Mulching a Lawn

Step 1

Freshly moisten the lawn area
and say goodbye.
Moisture is necessary for the decomposition process

Step 2

Prep the Edges. Remove border of lawn by hand to ensure the entire lawn is under the sheet mulch. It is important that the lawn does not “peak” out of the edges.

Step 3

1st Layer -Spread Compost. Rake it smooth. The compost speeds the decomposition process and adds fertility to the new planting area.

Step 4

2nd Layer – Cardboard. Use landscape staples to hold down the edges.
Overlapping is better than “underlapping”.
Be sure there are no gaps or holes in the cardboard.

Step 5

3rd Layer – Mulch Material.
Start at farthest point from sidewalk
Thick layer: 4- 8 inches thick spread on top of Cardboard.
Raked really smooth.

Step 6

Hose down the mulch material with a firm spray. Keep the mulch moist while the lawn decomposes.
