How to Mulch Process
The process on how to mulch and apply to your garden is:
- First to remove grass and weeds from the base of your tree before applying mulch.
- This can be done by applying Round Up or Zero weed killer to the weeds and grass only.
- Annual weeds can be controlled by cutting them close to the ground and covering with a layer of wet newspaper and then applying your leaf mulch directly over the top.
Most leaf mulch that is available is not given enough time to decompose prior to being sold. It is therefore suggested that you apply 100gms of blood and bone per square meter of mulch that you will be using. Most importantly, the layer of mulch around your tree should be 50-100 mm thick and should not come into direct contact with the trunk or stems of your trees and plants.
