Follow these 8 steps, to maximize the aesthetic value of your Bark or mulch
Make the most of the aesthetic beauty of mulch.
Spray all weeds with weed killer 1 to 2 weeks prior to mulching. This allows weeds to completely die, making them much easier to pull.
TRIM TREES AND BUSHES
Because of the debris produced, be sure to trim trees and bushes before applying new mulch.
CLEAN OUT MULCH BEDS
Remove all dead leaves, weeds and trimmings with a rake.
EDGE YOUR BEDS
Landscapes with clean edges enhance the appearance and give it a professional look. Use an edging shovel or power edger to accomplish this. Tip: Use your garden hose as a guide to create nice flowing curves.
Use a stiff rake, such as a mud rake, to smooth all surfaces to be mulched. Otherwise, your mulch will look lumpy.
APPLY A QUALITY LANDSCAPE WEED BARRIER CLOTH (NOT PLASTIC) IT NEEDS TO DRAIN
This is the best insurance to prevent weeds.
IT'S TIME TO MULCH
Using your hands or a rake, apply new mulch over the cultivated mulch or soil. Spread evenly to 2-inches thick, more or less, depending on budget and taste. When complete, water to moisturize mulch and settle it into place.
USE DRIP IRRIGATION
If you have plants do not use spray head sprinklers. The calcium in the water will discolor and break down the Bark or Mulch.
