Looking for an alternative to plastic mulches or landscape fabric? Today, Lisa and Layne discuss Bio360, the biodegradable mulch film Lisa uses at the farm. They cover what Bio360 is made of, advantages and disadvantages of biodegradable mulch, alternatives, how to install the film by hand and using equipment, where to place drip tape, which side of the film to place up (black or white/gray), tips for handling and storing, how long the material is expected to last, and more. Listen to the podcast and learn how to mulch your planting beds with a biodegradable film that can be incorporated into the soil at the end of the season!
The video version of Lisa and Layne’s conversation will be posted to The Gardener’s Workshop’s YouTube channel, where all “Seed Talk” episodes are organized into a playlist.
