There are many benefits of mulching your garden. Not only do organic mulches help plants and trees retain moisture and prevent weed growth, they also enrich soil and add a cleaned up, well-manicured look to landscapes. Mulch is also helpful in protecting young and vulnerable plants and shrubs in winter. Although it can be applied at anytime of the year, springtime, after plants are in the ground and established, is the preferred time for gardeners to mulch.
Mulches should typically be applied about 2-3 inches deep for best results, although this can vary depending on the type of mulch being used and the type of soil it is being applied to. To determine the best mulch depth, look at the natural moisture content in the terrain it is being applied to. For example: sandy, loose soils benefit from a denser mulch to retain moisture. Wet soils (soils that easily compact when a handful is squeezed together) do not need a thick layer of mulch, as this type of soil adequately retains moisture.
The density of the mulch itself should also play a role in deciding how much to apply. For example: If you are using a heavier medium such as shredded bark or wood chips, go for 2-3 inch layers.
