How much bulk mulch will I need?
The standard application of mulch is approximately 5-10cm in depth. Although, if your mulch is for trees, you’ll only need mulch depth of 5-6cm. Also, make sure to leave 5cm space between the mulch layer and the tree trunk. For vegetable gardens and garden plants you’ll need 5cm depth to ensure soil insulation. Additionally, it is recommended that during winter you increase the depth of the mulch to ensure it is closer to 7cm for vegetable gardens and garden plants to help insulate from harsh cold weather.
