Should Mulch Go Over Or Under Creeping Juniper Branches

Question From: S. Glisson - ALABAMA
Q: I have 2 year old juniper that is still trying to cover the space that I have it planted in. So, I am about to mulch that area, but my question is do I put the mulch over the creeping branches of the juniper or do I need to pull them up on top of the mulch? Help.


Pull them up on top of the mulch Scott and be sure the mulch is not banked up against the trunk of the plant. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
