Sand is defined as loose material consisting of ground rocks and mineral grains. It is a naturally occurring granular material whose mineral particles can consist of silica, calcium carbonate, and other minerals. Since sand does not hold water and is non-porous, its large spaces between particles allowed air to pass through more freely, making sand an ideal addition to any garden. For this reason, you can buy sands Australia for your next landscape project.(more…)

Generally, cypress mulch is considered safe for dogs and cats. However, you also need to know about other types of mulch.(more…)
If you’ve taken up gardening on a more serious level due to the lockdowns from the pandemic, you’ve probably been encouraged to use organic compost with your ornamental or vegetable garden.

There are advantages in using organic compost, though with a few disadvantages as well. However, the disadvantages can be overcome with a few compromises.(more…)

While the majority of people keep dogs and cats as pets, some keep other animals as pets such as turtles, goats, sheep, goldfish, snakes, etc. No matter what type of pet a person has, the pet’s safety is always of utmost concern, especially when it involves having a sort of playpen, and litter box, for the pet. Also, some pets love spending time outdoors, so these pens need to be outdoors. But instead of buying expensive materials to serve as lining or flooring for pet pens, you can purchase inexpensive cypress mulch or other types of mulch from landscaping sellers.(more…)
We all love our four-legged canine or feline family members. However, the by-product of these dogs and cats is the unwanted “poop.” In Australia alone, a large percentage of the population owns either a cat or dog, or both. This roughly amounts to more than 10 million cats and dogs. An average pooch or feline can approximately produce about 180 kilograms of animal waste in a year. So, all this waste can pile up even when it ends up in a landfill. Rather than throwing it away, you can use animal waste as a sustainable source of organic compost.(more…)
