Here she goes again…
…talking about that deep mulch garden stuff. 😉
If you’re a regular reader, you know how in-love I am with this method. I also promised to keep you updated with the progress of the garden this year, considering it’s my second year of implementing hay mulch.
Soooooo… I decided to show you today, instead of just write about it.
In this short video, you’ll learn:
- The #1 MISTAKE I made this year with my mulching
- How a mulched garden fares after being neglected after two weeks…
- And why this crazy method is still working, even with my mistakes and neglect.

- If you’re brand new to the whole mulch-thang, check out my very first deep mulch garden how-to post.
- This post will show you how I planted in the mulch this spring with ZERO tilling.
- Here’s what my garden looked like before I implemented deep mulching. (It was BAD…)
- And you can get my deep mulch ebook for FREE right here.
I purposely am including these pics, weeds and all, so you can see what things look like after two weeks of neglect in a mulch garden. Just keepin’ it real folks…
But before anyone declares this method “doesn’t work,” keep in mind the following things:
- As mentioned in the video, my layer was too thin this year. A thicker layer would have helped a bunch.
- If I hadn’t had the deep mulch in place, leaving for two weeks would have resulted in a garden completely lost to the weeds. There would have been no salvaging it.
- Ten minutes of upkeep/weeding each day in my mulched garden is more than enough to keep the small number of weeds at bay. However, I’m thankful I have the option of leaving for a couple weeks and still having a garden when I get back.
