To mulch or not to mulch is that the question?
Bark mulch has many benefits. It is a terrific weed deterrent and soil amender. Bark Mulch helps to improve water retention during the summer and moderates soil temperature. When applied directly onto the soil surface of your beds, we recommend a minimum depth of 4″. Any weed seeds that do happen to blow in are very easily removed. As the bark composts it replenishes the soil and keeps it from compacting. A light raking and a light topping as needed, will keep your beds healthy and beautiful.

Dark aged bark screened fine. Looks beautiful and great for mixing into heavy soils
