Mulch 3 June 2014 Mulch
All my plants are heavily mulched with readily available year old wood chips. The layer is 2 to 3 inches thick. I use from 6 to 8 cubic yards each year.I transport in a box in my van, half a yard each trip from a local supplier at $5.00 per load. In my case the main purpose is to retain as much moisture as possible, by inhibiting evaporation due to Sun and wind action. Mulch also plays a role in inhibiting weed growth to some degree. In the Fall the chips are rototilled into the underlying soil. They are mostly composted by the following Spring.
