    Perform Mulch Introduction

    Here at Mulch Masters we are looking to introduce a product that will not only cut down on the days you need to be out tending to your plants but in your stead will increase the Natural Organic Soil Health in which all our plants depend.

    In our flower beds, shrub lines, manicured gardens we know that keeping a mulch ground enhances the earth's ability to maintain proper soil moisture levels, mycelial network, and good bacterium that promote proper root growth, structure, and feeding of the plant. These microbes and proper levels of moisture and minerals act as "Yogurt for the Earth" increasing the "Probiotic Biome" that acts as the gut of the plant.

    Mulch Masters is proud to present this added value into a Mulch named "Perform" that has been shown to enhance and maintain proper plant health.
