FOLLOW THESE 10 STEPS TO MAXIMIZE THE VALUE OF YOUR PREMIUM BARK

  1. Kill Weeds: Spray all weeds with weed killer 1 to 2 weeks prior to mulching. This allows weeds to completely die, making them much easier to pull.
  2. Trim Trees and Bushes: Because of the debris produced, be sure to trim trees and bushes before applying new bark.
  3. Clean Out Garden Beds: Remove all dead leaves, weeds and trimmings with a rake.
  4. Cultivate: Use a roto-tiller or hand cultivator to loosen any compacted soil or existing mulch. This allows moisture and air to pass through the bark layer easier.
  5. Edge Your Beds: Landscapes with clean edges enhance the appearance and give it a professional look.
  6. Rake Smooth: Use a stiff rake to smooth all surfaces.
  7. Apply a Pre-Emergent: This is the time to prevent weed seeds. Apply the pre-emergent before applying bark. A second application later, further ensures protection from weed seeds.
  8. Apply the bark product of your choice: Using your hands or a rake, apply new mulch over the cultivated mulch or soil. Spread evenly to your desired thickness depending on your budget or taste. When complete, water to moisturize mulch and settle it into place.
  9. Fungus: If present, remove it and the surrounding mulch. Rake existing mulch to cover the area. Then water thoroughly.
