Watch Product Benefits

Our all-natural biodegradable garden mulch has been specifically designed with the urban gardener in mind. Ideal for gardens, raised beds, containers & pots, planted with vegetables, herbs, fruit shrubs / trees and flowers. GardenStraw is made with 100% sustainably sourced wheat straw that conserves water, prevents weeds, improves soil health and protects your plants.

Less Maintenance. Better Gardens.

Whether it’s a hobby, a passion or a lifestyle, gardening can provide a boost to your health and wellbeing in so many ways. It enhances your natural environment, contributes to healthier eating and food security and provides quality time outdoors. With so many benefits, we wanted to make gardening easier and more accessible so you spend less time maintaining, and more time enjoying your garden.

A Natural Solution

GardenStraw provides a natural, sustainable solution to growing a healthier, more vibrant garden. We know how important it is to be confident in what you’re putting into your soil. Through our unique and innovative cleaning process we create bright, fresh, pure and natural garden mulch, perfect in length and form to encourage healthy plant life and soil conditions.

Making Gardening Easier

We want your garden to thrive even in the face of challenging environmental conditions. As more areas experience long periods of drought and water restrictions, our specially formulated mulch helps to minimize watering needs and promote stable soil moisture (read about how Maggie, with From Soil to Soul, conserves water with GardenStraw – saving up to 50% in her garden). It also goes to work for you by naturally suppressing weeds, improving soil health and protecting your plants.

Extremely versatile, GardenStraw can be used for gardens, raised beds, containers and pots planted with vegetables, herbs, fruit trees/shrubs and flowers. It’s also great for lawn seeding and patch repair.

We use clear, clean and recyclable packaging making it easy to transport, store and use. Available in two convenient sizes, our standard bag is 3 cubic feet and our new Mini is 0.5 cubic feet. Certified organic wheat straw is also available in both sizes, in limited quantities.

Due to the nature of the wheat plant, not all wheat seeds are removed from the straw during harvest. We filter out most remaining seeds, however a few may sneak through and may sprout in your garden. Unlike grass and weeds, once the wheat seedling is removed it won’t regrow and you will continue to experience the benefits of GardenStraw.

“I’ve been amazed how much moisture the soil retains using GardenStraw. I need to remind myself not to water everyday. We have barely needed to weed our garden this summer. Between watering and weeding GardenStraw is saving us time and saving the world fresh water.”

Testimonial

Christina

“Last year on the west coast many gardeners lost tomatoes due to late blight. My tomato bed had a thick layer of straw and… no blight! I’m sure other factors (watering practices, pest & disease management, nutrition) helped me with maintain nice healthy crops but I’m so certain the thick mulch played a huge part. Will definitely keep up with the mulching this year!”
