Any landscape labourer will tell you that mulching is a task they don’t enjoy doing, usually because it is often time consuming, fiddly work. The task is quite physical, one wheelbarrow at a time, and if the gardens are heavily planted, the wheelbarrow would be dumped and then further spread out with rake. Not only is this method inefficient and manually taxing, it is difficult to maintain a consistent depth and the end result is never as good as it could be.
In 2010 while undertaking the NSW Enterprise Workshop, the “Naturally Green Team” further investigated the viability of a bark blowing business to be regionally based in NSW. In August 2010, Ecoscape Solutions was formed and has been providing an alternative to the wheelbarrow for professional landscapers, local councils, government agencies and the home gardener ever since.
