- Weed that area. This is going to prevent the weeds from getting embedded within the mulch while they’re growing.
- Spread the Mulch. Apply a layer of 1-4 inches over the desired mulching area. You shouldn’t apply a layer of over 4”. When you have too much, it can damage the soil and plants.
- Water your area if you are using organic mulch. Give that area 1” worth of water so that the mulch’s set in place.
