Laying mulch may seem like an easy task but it can be fairly difficult. Here are our best tips to help you easily and painlessly lay mulch.
1. FIND YOUR NEAREST LANDSCAPE SUPPLY STORE
The first thing you need to do is find a landscaping supplier that will deliver your mulch in bulk. There is nothing more tiring than buying bag after bag of mulch at the home improvement store. It is much easier to get a bulk load of mulch and spread it everywhere it needs to go at the same time.
2. ORDER EXTRA MULCH
The last thing you want is to get to the end of your project and realize you need more mulch! Make sure you always order more than you think you’re going to need. You can always use the extra mulch to fill in bare spots.
3. GET A STURDY WHEELBARROW
Make sure you have a sturdy wheelbarrow to easily move your mulch.
4. WEAR GARDENING GLOVES
To save time and clean up, make sure you wear gardening gloves. It is much easier to spread mulch with your hands and the end result looks more even.
5. USE A PITCHFORK
You’ll want to have a good pitchfork for helping scoop mulch into your wheelbarrow and to spread the mulch in your beds.
