how thick do you normally spread mulch
3 inch range. Sometimes less if there is good coverage. Around 4 if there is no mulch to begin with.
2-3 inches - maybe more like 4 if it is a new mulched area or a playground area.
I never never comply with requests to mound mulch around trees, though. Bad for the trees, and takes way too much work to remove it all when you want new mulch there in a couple of years.
Sounds about right
New beds (dirt) 3"-4" otherwise 2". I went on 4 mulch estimates in the last 2 days and was asked what is the least amount of mulch we could put down to "freshen up" their beds. I stick with 2", but it just goes to show you that people are still very cost concious this year. I got 2 out of the 4 so people are willing to spend the money, just not so freely. One job is 6yds of mulch @ $80/yd (open beds) and the other is 4yds @ $90/yd (some edging in that price).
3 inches in sufficent.
If the property is being preped for sale, I spread mulch at 1 1/2 to 2 inches (enough to help the house show well). For my regular customers, I spread it 2 to 3 inches. If there has not been any mulch in the bed before, I spread it at 3 to 4 inches.
Properly mulched beds are 3"-4" in depth.
3" in new beds, 1-2" if you're just top dressing.
Agreed, if you're mulching every year 3-4" shouldnt really be necessary.
