Useful Tips on Mulching
If you add 5cm to 10cm of mulch to gardens it reduces the need for herbicides. Also various wood and bark mulches are composed of fine particles and should not be more than five to seven centimeters deep. Furthermore coarse-textured mulches such as pine bark nuggets allow good air movement through them and can be as deep as four inches.
In addition Mulch made up of grass clippings or shredded leaves should be no deeper than 5 centimeters. Because this material tends to mat together. Therefore restricting the water and air supply to plant roots. Also a 5 centimeter layer of pine needles makes an excellent mulch for acid-loving trees and shrubs. It allows water to penetrate much easier.
When to use Mulch
The best time to place mulch around new plantings is right after they are planted. Because this helps to conserve the moisture in the roots of a new plant until the roots have grown out.
Mulch is best applied in early spring for established plants. This is when plants are starting to grow due to the warmer weather and increased sunlight. Also when weeds start to germinate.
