Mulching & Water Access to new hedging

Later this month, (April) I will be planting 4ft high Portuguese laurel hedging (potted) topped off with a permeable membrane and bark mulch to prevent weeds. Question :- As new plants will require watering for a certain period until they get established, will the mulch restrict water access to the plant roots? sylvester, , Posted: 12/04/2017

The mulch will not impede water, and you would be best advised to set up a little drip-irrigation set, if the hedge it more than a few metres, or you can hand-water until they are rooted with good growth. The mulch will break down on the membrane and create a compost for weeds, better without.
