IKEA boxes laid over the root run of fruit trees

The current wisdom is to not mulch your fruit trees. Whilst mulching retains moisture it also creates a humid meso-climate that encourages fungal diseases like brown rot, rust etc.

But the evap rates in Adelaide are huge. Now the answer I've found is to lay out those boxes I've got under the dripline. The dripper hose is under the cardboard. Makes sense.
