"The best organic mulches are coarse in structure, applied when soils are moist and never deeper than three inches in depth. Too thickly-applied mulch restricts movement of oxygen and carbon dioxide into and out of the root zone. If mulch is used in the landscape it should be mixed several times a season. This mixing process will help provide air in the mulch and prevents growth of fungi including “dog vomit fungus” which appears each fall. Mixing also helps prevent the development of a soil-mulch layer of fine particles that prevent the movement of water in and out of the soil. Be sure mulch is never placed against stems or trunks of trees or shrubs. Mulch contact with stems of plants causes crown rot. If mulches dry out, they repel water, just like a thatched roof. Mulches applied over a dry soil will keep that soil drier. The important point is to apply mulches at the proper time and be sure to check soil moisture under mulches, especially if you are irrigating." – Information obtained from Medina Co.
