One of the most important steps in mulching your beds is the prep work. The last thing you want is to go through all the effort and money to mulch your beds only to have it look bad because you have weeds and grass sticking out through your mulch. Also it will be a lot more difficult to weed your beds after the mulch is down.

Step 1 Prep Work

Make sure you pull all the weeds and grass out of your beds.

For best results you want to lay 3” to 4” evenly through your beds.

You need to lay down the proper thickness of mulch for your mulch ground cover to be effective. Generally, you\'ll need 3" to 4" of mulch to help retain moisture and retard weed growth, although a thinner layer is preferable directly under plants.

To calculate the volume of mulch you\'ll need, multiply the square footage of the area to be covered (SF) by the depth of the mulch (DM). Multiply the result by 0.0031 to determine the number of cubic yards you\'ll need. The equation looks like this: SF x DM x 0.0031 = Cubic Yards.
