Lava rock as a mulch helps to tie all the different components of your garden and landscape together and gives your yard a natural flow. Lava rock has many uses in organic gardening. It can impact how plants grow, and the amount of work a gardener has to put in. Being natural in origin it does not have any environmental impacts like artificial mulches do. CanLava’s Red Basalt and Black Scoria are excellent mulches as they help to prevent excess evaporation, improve soil drainage, prevent weeds etc. Lava rock is a very popular decorative yet functional mulch as it is not just simply a rock material, but a rock material with many value-added benefits. Offered in both black and red, the colours of lava rock are determined by the minerals present in the rock and the cooling process.

CanLavas black and red lava rocks are rich in micro-nutrients, trace elements and minerals. Lava rocks are the perfect option for those looking for something low maintenance yet beneficial. When used as a mulch, lava rocks prevent soil erosion while allowing all the nutrients to seep through. It also slows down evaporation from the soil, which can greatly reduce your watering needs. Due to the rock structures’ vesicles and pores the rock is considered free-draining, this porosity allows for better drainage which prevents fungal growth keeping your yard healthy. Unlike other organic mulches, lava rock does not disintegrate or decompose and the colors do not fade away. Lava rock lasts a very long time, requires next to no maintenance so that you may simply place it and forget it about it. There also is nothing out there available that will ever completely stop weeds, but lava rocks have proven to be an effective weed suppressant and if you choose to place a fabric weed barrier below it the results are even better. 

Lava rock is also an excellent soil conditioner for soils that need increased aeration and drainage. Remineralization is one of the processes in restoring a soils health, as adept as plants are they cannot produce minerals that are essential to health and nutrition. The solution to his problem is to add rocks or rock dust that are rich in micro-nutrients, trace elements and minerals to the soil. These compounds are extremely important to the life cycle of plants and enhance the ability of beneficial microbes to flourish. Rock minerals are the building blocks of healthy soil, results include improved plant structure, increased resistance to pests and disease, and more intense flavor profiles for fruits and vegetables.
