Hey y'all Texas here.
I've always struggled with how exactly to put down fresh compost/soil in a raised bed. I try to not disturb the soil too much and do a lasagna type fashion of rejuvenating soil. However if I have lots of mulch on top, would it be appropriate to rake the mulch to the side, fill the raised beds with new compost, and then rake the mulch back?
I have tried just dumping a new layer of compost, and then a new layer of mulch, but after a year or two the mulch doesnt compost fast enough and I'm left with too woody and mulchy soil.
