    Has anyone ever heard of putting compost down before mulch to prevent weeds? I had a request from someone for this and never heard of it.

    I thought all avid gardeners/horticulturists did this. Both benefit and enhance one another. Compost supplies the nutrients and the mulch limits weed and helps in water retention. It's all good.
