Applying mulch



Published: Sun, May 20, 2001 @ 12:00 a.m.



What you should know

Begin by asking yourself the following questions:

What do I hope to achieve by mulching?

Weed control?

Moisture retention?

Soil improvement?

Beautification?

How large is the area to be mulched? How much mulch will I need to cover the area?

Mulch is measured in cubic feet. As an example, if you have an area 10 feet by 10 feet and you wish to apply 3 inches of mulch, you would need 25 cubic feet.

General Guidelines

Do not apply mulch directly in contact with plants. Leave an inch or so of space next to plants to help prevent diseases flourishing from excessive humidity.

Remove weeds before spreading mulch.
