Keep adding mulch to your garden beds throughout the summer to conserve water, keep roots cool, and the weeds under control. It’s important to water well before applying mulch, or you will just insulate the dry soil underneath. Pile mulch two to six inches deep under shrubs, trees, vines, flower and vegetable beds, remembering not to let the mulch lay against the trunks of trees and shrubs to prevent rot.
