There is no doubt, keeping your landscape and garden looking great is hard work, but it’s also very rewarding! Re-mulching can play a key role in keeping your plants healthy and strong. Better able to withstand our intense summer heat.
Re-mulching, removing the older pieces and applying fresh new mulch, allows nutrients, moisture, and air get to the roots of your plants.
Before you start the re-mulching process, make sure the existing mulch is less than three inches. Over mulching can cause problems. Before adding new mulch, turn the old mulch, either with a garden weasel, metal rake, or pitchfork, enabling it to air out and allowing vital nutrients to extend all the way to the roots. You can remove older mulch for a clean, decorative element.
Apply a fresh layer mulch. Make sure it is an even level, never over 3 inches deep. Also, leave three to six inches of space between the base of the tree or shrub and where the mulch starts, similar to the shape of a donut.
For a beautiful landscape, make sure there is a good balance of plants and mulch.
There are many types of mulch on the market, don’t be afraid to try something new or mix and match the mulches for an eye catching design.
