How deep should mulch be applied?
Approximate 2-3in of mulch to garden beds, but remember to taper the mulch back to ground level as you get near the trunk of your plants.
When should you put mulch down?
This can be done anytime of the year but many gardeners choose to mulch in the spring. This is normally the time when we are cleaning up the garden for the year and get ahead of weeds that may emerge.
