APPLY MULCH!


Mulch finishes your landscape beds, protects tree roots, keeps the soil cool, reduces moisture loss from soil by 10-25% and slowly breaks down, adding extra organic matter
.

• Apply no more than 3″ of mulch for woody landscape beds and individual trees.

• Apply no more than 2″ for perennial and annual beds.

• Keep mulch away from trunks or crowns of plants.

• Use high quality mulch products.
