I have a layer of mulch in my raised garden to help keep the soil cool and damp during the Arizona summer heat. My question is what do you do with the layer once the season is over with and you do not need to protection any longer. Do you remove it or simply work it into the rest of the soil and let it decompose and become nutrients? Thanks.

You can use it again for a fall garden. Even though it's not as hot, mulch is still a good practice to maintain soil moisture and reduce weeds. If you prefer, you can also work it into the soil and let it decompose. Enjoy your garden!
