The mulch between the raised beds had decomposed so much that it was turning into black soil.  So, today I put down some fresh wood chips to cover the ground. It will be good for several years before it will need more chips - the old coating of chips lasted 4 years.

Very nice, OG!

The mulch between my beds is turning into soil now also. I think its been about 6 summers for mine, though.

I'm thinking of raking it all out and composing it and then adding fresh mulch on top.

Did you just top dress or did you clean out the old stuff?

I just put it on top of the old. It has composted down to less than an inch above the hardware cloth that is under the beds, and I decided to just leave it to continue building the soil. Can't beat free wood chips for mulch! Very Happy
