I had originally place an order for compost and mulch but was second guessing myself and thinking that perhaps I could just use compost. I discussion with a staff member I was advised that the compost should be dug in which I was not prepared to do. We changed the order to Garden Party and mulch. We spread the Garden Party on the beds first and then spread the mulch. The beds look terrific now and I hope we will have good results both for good growth and weed control.
