If you put a thick layer down, 1 bale is enough for approx. 9m2.
Pea straw mulch prevents loss of soil moisture by evaporation, but still allows rain to penetrate to the soil. It can reduce required watering by up to 60%!
A thick layer of pea straw can actively suppress weeds from growing through the mulch layer and prevent seeds of weeds from germinating.
As pea straw mulch decomposes, it releases nutrients such as nitrogen back into the soil.
Pea straw increases the organic matter in the soil. This improves soil structure and drainage, and encourages earthworms and soil microbial activity.

Price: $22

HOW TO COST
We will discuss look models of how to calculate what you should sell your product for - the retail margins, as well as the cost breakdown as well, has how you are going to pay your self.
Lots to think about and learn in this one day workshop.
