Re: Easy/Pretty… Stout method in raised beds?
I have in the past done Stout-style heavy mulch on my raised beds several years in a row. Though eventually I end up tidying up and starting over every few years, composting the partly decayed mulch, topping up the beds with more soil and compost, and just making it look a little less wild. My beds are 12 inches (2×12 lumber) and I like them 4 feet wide.
I have normally used straw as the mulch out there.
