For best results, deweed your area first, making sure to pull the weeds out by the roots. Then sprinkle some Turf & Ornamental Weed & Grass Stopper.
Then place weed barrier on the bare ground and tack it down with staples so it stays in place. Weed barrier keeps your mulch from getting muddy or sinking into the ground.
After you’ve installed the weed barrier, then apply your mulch keeping it 3 inches deep. A depth of 3 inches provides adequate insulation that helps protect your plants’ roots in the hot summer and cold winter.
You can also line the edges of your project with steel or polyboard edging. This will keep the mulch from drifting away and will give your project a nice finished appearance.
