Mulching

There are plenty of types of mulch out there but we most often recommend a finely processed bark mulch. Mulching keeps your landscape looking clean, it retains moisture for the plant roots, offers a buffer for extreme temperature changes, and keeps mowers/trimmers away from the ever sensitive stems. In like most cases to much of a good thing can be bad and this principal carries over into mulching. Two inches of mulch is plenty and old mulch should be removed before applying new mulch.
