Tammy is right on the money! I also use straw, the older the better, I use straw in the big rolls that is 3-4 yrs old (also breaks down quicker to help amend the soil) I usually put mine about 6 inches deep and on top of a soaker or drip hose. you can also use grass clippings although not as many this summer with the dry weather, you can use pine needles, although they dont break down like straw or grass clippings. you can use wood chips, and even sawdust, but dont mix green wood chips or green sawdust with the soil. It is ok on top of the soil as a mulch.
good luck with the garden
