Shredded Papers Make Good Mulch

by Joan W.
( Somerset, Massachusetts, USA)

Since I have a Shaklee Distributorship, I end up with a lot of office-type paper that at the end of the year needs to be shredded: old checks, old information that contain credit card numbers, and sensitive material I don't want anyone else to have. I keep a Mail Mate shredder underneath my desk. I shred any envelopes, paper, and sensitive material right away and put it in bags.


Then when it comes time to dig my garden, with each shovel full I put a small layer of shredded paper in it.

In the hot summer, I spread a thin layer of this shredded paper around the plants and then put mulch or soil over it to lessen the weeds.

shredded papers NEW

I absolutely have proven that shredded paper and even whole sheets of newspaper make marvelous mulch. It has reduced the weeds in my garden tremendously. I put the paper down, wet it thoroughly and put cedar mulch over it or pine bark mulch over it and it works amazingly well.

The main cause of poverty is lack of education. How a person can become rich if he does not know which
assignment writing company resources he have, how they can utilized and what are the benefit of them we can get.
