Compost mulch

For COMPOST MULCH applications on landscaped beds, use a 50 mm (2 inch) layer of COMPOST MULCH and spread evenly using a rake. When mulching around trees, avoid excess COMPOST MULCH buildup around the trunk to reduce the risk of rodent damage. Arrange COMPOST MULCH so water drains away from the trunk. For mulching, this COMPOST MULCH is screened to 19 mm (3/4”) providing a coarse texture easy to apply and providing an even coverage of the area. Mulching should be done in late spring to early summer after clean-up of landscaped beds and the regrowth of perennials and shrubs is well established.

Flower beds

For establishing new flower beds or improving existing beds, add 10-25 mm (3/8” - 1 inch) of COMPOST MULCH and rototill or mix with soil to 125 mm (5 inches) in depth. Plant and water accordingly.

Preparing flower boxes or pots

When preparing the flower boxes or pots, incorporate 1 part COMPOST MULCH to 3 parts potting mix or soil and mix thoroughly.
