When applying your mulch always be generous and apply evenly. Generally we recommend the mulch be aplied at 4 inches (100mm) thick all over your garden bed. Remember to leave a small area around the plant stem to ensure water can penetrate the mulch and get down into the soil.
After 3 to 6 months it is good to turn your mulch with a garden fork or shovel. This will extend its life and add a new colour to your garden as the mulch underneath will be fresh and moist looking like new.
If you are topping up your garden with new mulch I would recommend applying it at a thickness of 1 to 2 inches (25mm - 50mm) to avoid the old mulch showing when you turn the newer mulch.
Enjoy your gardening and the smell of a newly Cypress mulched garden.
