Garden mulch: Answer: Garden mulch
Dear Mr. Fabio
We thank you for the trust you have given us regarding the information for your garden, through the section of the Expert of Gardening.it
Mulching is an agronomic practice widely used in agriculture on a professional level. Regarding the use of black polyethylene we have no information on its harmful effect, but this should not be true given its widespread use in the agricultural field.
Instead as regards the addition of calcium to the soil in a bio way, it can be done with the use of lime, but in this way the effects can be seen only after a long time.
