I raked back the shredded bark mulch in one of my gardens with the intent to add compost, plant some new perennials and replace the mulch. I discovered that the mulch is incorporated into the soil in some areas as deep as 3-5 inches...in some spots there are pockets of the shredded bark under the soil. Do I need to dig it all out and replace the soil? The plants in this garden are: boxwood, euonymous, peonies and iris.
