    At any time of the year, but for best results, water and weed the area first.

  • How much More than Mulch Mix do I use?

    On Garden Beds:
    Moisten soil, remove weeds and liberally spread around annuals and perennials to a depth of 50-70mm, keeping the mulch away from the base of the plants.

    Trees & Shrubs:
    Moisten soil, remove weeds and liberally spread around trees and shrubs to a depth of 100mm, keeping mulch away from the base of plants.
