Will Mulch Stop Weeds?

Mulch is a preventative measure, begin with pulling all weeds prior to applying mulch. Add a 4 inch layer to keep weed seeds from germinating. Mulch will not stop weeds completely. If applied deep enough, it will prevent many weed seeds already in the soil from germinating and growing.

How thick should I apply mulch?

Spread approximately 4 in. of mulch to slow weed growth and retain moisture.
