I've decided to mulch my coffeed bed with Pebble Bark.
Pebble bark is free of the fines and dust found in some
other bark mulches. It seems resonable to me I should
mulch first; about an inch for starters. Am I correct,
mulch first? Dan
One of the purposes of mulch is to cover and shade the ground to retain
moisture. It would be more efficient to get the water to the ground before
you cover it with mulch than it would be to soak the mulch after placing
If the mulch itself is dry, water the mulch after placing it so that it
doesn't just wick the water back out of the ground, but you'll still be
using less water than if you didn't water the ground in the first place.
