Gardening-Choosing Mulch

This Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 photo shows a mulch volcano, or shredded bark piled high against the trunk of a tree in Langley, Wash. Too much mulch mounded against a tree eventually will rot the bark, deprive the roots of oxygen, attract insects and reduce the soil’s ability to dry. Instead, mulch should be spread two to four inches deep in a ring around the tree, leaving some space open near the base for water to penetrate and the tree to breathe. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)
