3. Then use a blower or garden hose to wash the excess mulch off the plants stems and leaves and you are done.

Takes some practice but it works great for us and gives us a light coating in annual/perennial beds.

Chris..you beat me to it..that is exactly how we do it, and for us, it is by far the easiest way to mulch stuff like that
