Clean mulch

I have been using the rice hulls the as an aerator in the soil for years and now find out that it works as a great mulch too, and the benefit of knocking down any gnats at the soil level is great help for any gardner.

Versatile, lowest price

These work very well for soil aeration. They can be used on their own, but mixed with one or two other aeration amendments I feel they allow for the best possible texture. The price is right too, I used to get rice hulls from a local brew shop but even after shipping I'm saving almost 70% if I'm buying the largest size. Get em!
