Your Cincinnati mulch connection, Cincinnati Landscaping!
If you're looking for a way to save lots of time in the garden, look no further. Mulching your flower and vegetable beds will drastically reduce the amount of time spent weeding, watering and fighting pests. Mulch also improves the appearance of your garden, and keeps dirt from splashing up on your flowers and vegetables when it rains.
If possible, consider using organic mulch. Organic mulches are those that used to be living material, such as bark, straw, leaves, grass clippings and pine needles. Cincinnati Landscaping is your source in the Cincinnati mulch business, we sell and install all kinds of organic mulch. These organic mulches improve the soil by adding nutrients as they decompose and encouraging earthworm activity. Organic mulches aren't perfect, though. If you have problems with rodents, you may want to choose inorganic mulch. In very moist environments, organic mulches may hold too much moisture. The excessive moisture will encourage slugs and snails, and may even cause the stems of your plants that come in contact with the mulch to rot.
Some common types of organic mulch include, ground hardwood, cypress bark and or wood, grass clippings, pine straw, and dried leaves.
Here in Southwest Ohio, we are typically using mulch for two purposes, primarily as a uniform color base and then secondly as a weed retardant.
The fact is, most people use to much mulch. For all intents and purposes, two inches of ground hardwood is as much as you should have in your planting beds. Any more depth than that, rainwater will not penetrate deeply enough with an average rain and your plants will suffer as the result.

If you are supplementing rain with regular watering or irrigation, it would then be acceptable to have additional depth, but, I emphasize regular watering. An occasional watering is not sufficient. In fact it is extremely detrimental to the plant material. See the following link on watering and irrigation.
