Product Details

GardenStraw is the cleanest, most effective straw mulch on the market. Straw is a fantastic mulch for your garden for a variety of reasons:

  • Organic material that breaks down over time, building your soil
  • Light color reflects more light and heat away from soil surface
  • Adds a boost of nitrogen and carbon to soil season after season as layers break down
  • Natural, aesthetically pleasing look to garden beds, containers, and pots

However, sourcing quality straw is the biggest impediment to home gardeners looking to get the benefits of straw mulch.

GardenStraw is a value-packed, 3 cu. ft. bag of pre-cleaned and pre-shredded wheat straw straight from the prairies of Canada. In contrast to many locally-sourced straws, GardenStraw is:

  • Clean - The all-natural cleaning process leaves the straw virtually wheat seed and dust-free, filtered for any impurities.
  • Consistent - Pre-shredded and split, it's a consistent texture and length for easy application.
  • Convenient - One bag of GardenStraw covers 100 sq. ft. at least 2"-3" deep.
  • Note: due to the nature of the sustainably sourced wheat plant, not all wheat seeds are removed by the farmer from the straw during harvest. Even with HealthiStraw’s thorough and natural process, occasional wheat seeds may sneak through and 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 lasting full benefits of straw mulch – water conservation, weed control and soil health.

Q: What are the benefits of using GardenStraw? 

A: 

  • Less weeds – Prevents weed seeds from germinating.
  • Less watering – GardenStraw mulch helps hold in moisture and keep the soil cool, so you’re watering up to 50% less.

Q: How do I use GardenStraw? 

A: In your garden, flower beds, and containers – Weed your garden first, then place a 2 to 3 inch layer around any flowers and plants, about 1 inch (2.54 cm) away from the crowns and stems. Then water thoroughly.

Lawn seeding – Spread a ½ to 1 inch (1.27 cm to 2.54 cm) layer over newly seeded lawns and water thoroughly. Once grass is fully established, mow normally. There is no need to remove the GardenStraw as it decomposes and adds value to the soil.

Composting – Add GardenStraw as a carbon material to your compost. Simple rule of thumb is to use one-third nitrogen and two-thirds carbon. Lay down GardenStraw first to aid in drainage and help aerate your bin or pile. Continue to add GardenStraw as waste is added. Add a 2-3 inch (5.48-7.62 cm) layer to the bottom of your indoor compost pail to reduce doors.
