How To Use

Bed Preparation

​Bed Preparation: Before laying the Weed Recede® Weed Suppression System, weeds should be either removed and/ or treated with a nonselective herbicide. You may choose to skip this step, however, your success may be reduced. The Weed Recede® Weed Suppression System will perform much better when starting with a clean bed.​

When your mulch beds border creeping grasses such as Bermuda grass, or St. Augustine grass etc., we recommend that you edge your bed lines with a blade edger to help minimize grass/weed encroachment. This process should be repeated throughout the season as often as is necessary to stop creeping grasses.

Plan Your Usage

First, estimate how many bags of Weed Recede® you will need. You can use an estimated 8 square feet of coverage for each bag of Weed Recede® Disappearing Mulch Bags (4" overlap).

240 sq. feet divided by 8 sq. feet = 30 Weed Recede® Bags.

After the bed is weeded and cleaned, place Weed Recede® flat in the bed and use the easy opening perforation system to open. Open bag flat and place the bag in bed where you want it. Push mulch over the bag to cover.

Applying To Your Bed

At 8 square feet, mulch will cover approximately 2” + deep. Since the bag suppresses weeds, your landscape may require less mulch depth. ..which is good news for your plants, ….and your wallet! Leave a 4" or so overlap over each bag so as to improve weed control. Repeat….new bag should be placed 4" over the previously placed bag. 

For tree rings and curves or unusual shapes, you can tear/cut/fold and/or place pieces of the bag and then place mulch on top of the torn or cut pieces. You can also fold the bag under in places in order to achieve unusual shapes such as tree rings.



When storing bags, we recommend you store them out of the weather and/or moisture and direct sunlight... and not for extended lengths of time. Install Weed Recede® disappearing mulch bags as soon as you can after purchase in order to get the maximum time of weed suppression from our Patented system. They are designed to degrade and will do so if not used timely.

Should mulch move in the bed and expose the ground cover bag, we recommend re-covering and touching up these areas. Also, it is considered best to keep mulch away from and off of all buildings.

Caution: All wood mulch and bags can be flammable….do not get near flame or cigarettes.
