- Apply between ¼” and 4” depending on your usage goals (see chart below).
- Use in-between and around vegetables, annuals perennials, shrubs and trees to protect soil, conserve water, suppress weeds, and enrich soil.
- Spread evenly over newly planted grass seed to maintain moisture, protect from the sun and prevent erosion.
- Allow to biodegrade either over 3 – 4 weeks or all season, depending on the decomposition estimates (see chart below).
