Finer points in operating mulch layers make
the difference. On flat land, bury mulch 3 or 4
inches deep and let mulch edges lay on bottom
of opening disk cut so soil weight is on the
material. With raised beds, set
opening disks to
cut away bed sides and be
sure mulch edges reache bottom of furrow
(end result shown
previous page). Soil condition permitting, mulch edges can be placed
deeper in furrow so beds appear 'wrapped'
(photo above). Coordinate
mulch width and bed size.
Close mulch row spacing
This toolbar design allows gauge wheels and disks to fit in
narrow furrows to cover wider beds. On flat-land, how
close mulch rows can be depends on how close you can
drive the tractor.
