How Deep Should My Mulch Beds Be?

We recommend you apply mulch the first time to 3-4 inches deep, and reapply each year 2-3 inches deep. If you have previously used a mulch with a higher wood content (i.e. cypress, economy, or a dyed product), it may be necessary to remove the old wood debris before applying new mulch.
