How to use sawdust as mulch
Sawdust is often said to steal nitrogen from other plants; however, when you take the correct measures, it can support the growth of your plant and improve the soil. Other uses of sawdust include discouraging weeds and storing crops. The fact that sawdust needs nitrogen is because it is biodegradable and needs nitrogen to decompose. This is mainly a problem noticed when you incorporate sawdust directly into the soil instead of mulching with it.
Precautions while using sawdust mulch
Wood mulch that has not composted will take up a lot of nitrogen from the soil. To prevent the loss of nitrogen form your plants, it is a good idea to add some extra nitrogen to the sawdust before applying as mulch. To mix the sawdust with nitrogen, take 50 pounds of sawdust and mix 1 pound of actual nitrogen. Put the covering out to a depth of 1 to 1 ½ inches; make some space between the mulch and the tree trunks to avoid rotting. Because sawdust mulch has a fast rate of decomposition, you will probably have to refill it every year.
