Why mulch? Many mulches are aesthetically pleasing and can help showcase your plants. A good layer of mulch will help to conserve moisture and help keep weeds out.  You can minimize the spread of  many diseases by mulching, and it keep the temperature even.

When should I apply the mulch? Most mulching can be done anytime during the growing season, generally the earlier the better.

How deeply should I apply mulch? Again, this varies according to what type of mulch you are using and why you are mulching. Most organic mulches are applied 2-4 inches thick.
