- Fine (premium) rots faster, while coarser mulches tend to hand around longer and need less maintenance

- Some cheap pallet mulches are not heavy enough and blow around in the wind, our mulch has Staying Power!
- Mulch or Compost?
In wet soil and humid climates, organic mulches can promote diseases and increased chance of rot. If spread too thickly, mulch can interfere with the soils air circulation. Inorganic mulches such as landscape fabric are good to keep weeds down, but first you should spread 1-2" of compost over the soil. Once the landscape fabric is in place, it is hard to replenish soil organic matter. Spread mulch evenly at least 4" for new beds and existing beds 2-4" deep and 1-2" away from plants.
