Now is an excellent time to Mulch. Mulching this time of year as opposed to the summer months will give you the most benefit for your money because there is less chance of wash-out from rain and bleaching from the sun.
Mulching in plant beds should be done once or twice a year and be kept at 2-3 inches deep. The benefits of using mulch are both aesthetic and environmental.
