Hello my name is Jose Zuniga and I'm representing expertvillage.com. Well we planted our vinca or palm tree and later on I would probably add more to this flower bed as well. What we need to do now is mulch. Well mulch comes is big bags, come in different sizes, some of them shred, nuggets, or extra large. I went for the medium size some thing that is kind of light you know it beautifies the bed area as well. But the most important thing is that it is going to maintain the moisture that you need for your plant, it is going to make it grow quicker. Every time that it rains, every time that you water the plants it is going to maintain the moisture on the soil and that is what we want. Also as you can tell I started doing the mulch over here in the front. For the vinca it is kind of a flat even situation. When it comes to the palm just add some there, kind of do a cone in the center by you creating the cone your are going to help a little bit more water and it is going to help the plant grow a little bit faster. So you just distribute that evenly and it is perfect. Remember the main important part of mulch is to maintain the moisture and this is how we mulch our garden.
