Question: if i want to put mulch down what do i do first

Answer: In general, you want to maintain a layer of two to three inches of organic mulch around your plants and over the bare soil of your garden beds. A thick layer of mulch will help suppress weeds, slow water evaporation, and moderate soil temperatures. You can use any organic matter as mulch - compost, shredded leaves, even seasoned grass clippings. You'll want to pull any weeds that might be there before laying your mulch material. Hope this answers your question!
