How We Do It at Our Place
Using a Sand Spreader to Mulch Liners

This video from Decker's Nursery shows how they apply pine bark to mulch liners for winter protection.  Brian Decker says "We can do a couple of passes or travel slower to get the layer thick enough for weed prevention without excessive herbicide usage. This machine is a sand spreading machine modified to hold about 2 cubic yards of material."
