When renewing mulch, always check depth of existing mulch. Never have mulch depth exceed 4&quot;; I like to keep under that, like 3&quot; or less. If mulch is too deep, will cause root rot problems and can impede air and water penetration. If you are going to add 1&quot;, and depth is already 3&quot; - 4&quot;, remove some of the old first. <p>When adding new mulch, spread evenly at least 1&quot; deep to control weed growth.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana
