What you think about Strulch. We are always keen to hear what our customers say about Strulch. Thank you.
Friendly and efficient customer serviceWhen we first moved into our property, nine years ago, we had a severe ground elder problem. We discovered strulch a few years ago and are delighted at the way in which it has not only almost eliminated weeding but also has improved the condition of the soil. The friendly and efficient customer service has been appreciated
Lightweight and stays putHad my doubts whether this would stay put as it's very light but was proved wrong. Easy to use and looks good. No idea if birds would root around in it as they do bark chipping as we live on a brand new housing estate and have yet to see a bird! The only downside is the dog who likes to do a border patrol round the garden and collects bits on her feet and body which then gradually disperse around the house.
Discourages slugs and snailsThis picture shows a new bed created in May after thick undergrowth consisting of blackthorn and scrub had been removed , covered in Strulch and planted out with semi exotic perennials and annuals. This is the view three months later. We’re really pleased with the results we get with Strulch as it discourages slugs and snails and really helps to keep weeds at bay. But best of all the plants throughout the garden are in such good condition as they’re being fed as well. We’re telling all our gardening friends to use it. Now please can your husband invent a product that will stop moles from ruining the lawn!
Helped make the garden look a bit tidier!A friend gave us a bag to try and it was out first time using Strulch. We used it around our upside down trees as it is difficult to weed underneath them. So far so good and it has really smartened up the area. Time to buy some more I think!
Good in so many waysWe open our garden for charity under the National Garden Scheme several times each year. Our visitors are always very complimentary about how good the Strulch looks on our borders, particularly enhancing all forms of green and dark leaf plants. We have been using Strulch since 2013 and consider it to be the best mulch on the market, excellent at moisture retention and suppressing weeds. It saves us many hours of work throughout the year.
It’s Brilliant!It's brilliant! The place where I haven't used Strulch weeds have come through and the tilth is not nearly as good. Strulch makes all the difference. Mary Ann Sutherland ( Norfolk)
It's wonderfulStrulch really is a wonder product ! . I have recommended it to all my gardening friends. Hope the orders rush in ..... Claire, Devon
Great for improving seriously chalky soilWe live on the edge of the Salisbury Plain and gardening on chalk is challenging. But using Strulch over the years has improved the soil a lot so it's much easier to work now. We open Beggars Knoll Chinese Garden for the NGS and are really looking forward to seeing visitors again this year!
Instantly smartens up bordersWonderful stuff! I have applied Strulch to a border that runs down the side of my house which is on full view to my neighbours. It has instantly smartened up the entire space and has brought a rich top colour to the soil which can be a very boring grey due to the clay/chalk combination we have here in Hampshire. Hoping Strulch will add some good structure to the soil over time too for the same reason.
Well worth the moneyI would thoroughly recommend using Strulch which I have been using for about 4 years. I weed the bed well prior to planting and water the plants in well. I then use a covering of about 4 inches of Strulch over the soil. It has saved me hours of weeding. Instead of having to spend a lot of time weeding, I only have to pull out an occasional one. Slugs and snails avoid the area and there is little need for watering. As well as using it on flower beds, it has been great around strawberries. It is well worth the money and friends and neighbours are starting to use it, too.
Better than other mulchesWe have used Strulch in all areas of our garden for a number of years and find it much better than any other type of mulch. We live in Northern Ireland where we get a lot of rain and found that moss grew on bark mulch. We don't have any such problem with Strulch. It is light to use but doesn't blow away. We use it round flowers , fruit and vegetables and even in pots. It cuts down on a lot of weeding. We would highly recommend it. R.McF.
Keeps weeds at bayWe saw this little hedgehog on our walk round the block last night. Also have them in our garden. We have Strulch all over our flowerbeds and it has kept all the weeds at bay, brilliant stuff.
Alnwick gardenAs a stockist of Strulch I was interested to see Alnwick garden's use of it, back in March. Some borders had just been freshly mulched (see photo). The head gardener says their slug susceptible plants do really well and is a prime reason for using it. They use it in the ornamental garden. A good recommendation to pass onto clients!
I'm convertedI am completely converted to strulch ! I use on clients beds and borders and it really is great for top dressing pots. Big plus it’s light to carry and use. Great for a mulch around Roses too.
Brilliant stuff and not expensiveI went on a course at David Austin and they told us about Strulch. I thought I would give it a go, and I must say that in a gardening sense this is a lifesaving product! It is light weight, easy to use and the minute it went on my garden the plants seemed to respond. So many people have commented on how good the garden looks. I used to have to take a whole week off work in the spring just to get on top of the weeds but this product appears to have all but solved that. It is brilliant stuff and not expensive. I recommended it to a colleague and we are both Strulch converts. :)
I’ve hardly had to weed or waterI used Strulch for the first time this spring. I’ve got large new borders and a veggie garden, I thought as a test I’d use Strulch on the borders and continue with Nematodes in the veggie garden. I’ve spent a comparable amount of money on both and the Strulch has performed amazingly well - I’ve hardly had to weed or water. The garden birds love scratching about in it for insects, my cats love sleeping on it and it looks good, very natural. I’ve grown Hostas, Dahlias and a lot of other perennials without any slug damage. Nematodes on the other hand have performed badly, compared to Strulch. I think they are less environmentally friendly because of the vast amount of water needed to apply them and then also keep the area damp for 2 weeks after. This makes them labour intensive and guess what? I still have slugs eating all my lovely veg. So, I’ve decided to buy more Strulch this year for the veggie garden, I might apply a dose of Nematodes in the Spring but only one dose under the Strulch. I bet the results will be much better. If you haven’t bought any yet because you think it’s expensive, it’s the same price as treating a garden with Nematodes for a year but much more successful and environmentally friendly.
