I have a wooden fence that is 20 feet away from my house. Right next to this fence, I have planted various types of berries. I would like to mulch these berries with wood chip mulch because it is organic and it is cheaper than stone pebbles.
I have read that one should avoid putting wood mulch directly next to a wooden fence because it could attract termites.
- Is this true?
- Isn't the fence already wooden?
- So how would introducing wooden mulch cause termites to appear?
