"I have been using GardenStraw for few years in my garden and have noticed significant decrease in weed pressure and retention of moisture, bonus is my soil is light and flufffy the next season."
"Love GardenStraw! I started using it on my garlic a few years ago just to see what it would be like… Turned out it was pretty awesome. I also love how easy the soil is to work with the following year."
"Just started using this straw and LOVED it in my garden! I have very sandy soil which causes the water to drain so quickly and I need to water it every day if not twice a day. Since using the straw, I can usually water every other day now!"
"I use GardenStraw everywhere in my garden. To mulch garlic in fall, in my veggie pots on my patio (my friend calls it my tomato forest), and everywhere in the veggie garden. I've slowly converted almost my entire yard to diverse growing space. So many bees!!!!"
"I use a two-inch layer of HealthiStraw’s GardenStraw in my urban permaculture garden beds and containers and I love it. It stays in place, doesn't blow away easily, and helps deter pests. It is so effective in keeping moisture in the soil where it belongs, and the air in the straw acts as insulation, keeping the soil several degrees cooler than ambient."
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.
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.
