I use a modified method as my sand is so devoid of anything for growing veg that mulch alone is not enough. One big round bale of cow hay - with mega weed and grass seeds - laid down about a foot thick onto my garden area. Then mushroom compost is rowed out on top of the hay.
Any weeds that show up through that lot get a new handful of hay tossed over them.
Dig free gardening that works great.
The hay/poo from under my rabbit cages gets heaped up around any of the fruit trees that need it. Banana plants ALWAYS need it here, they are such hungry plants.
Hay breaks down, if you use it for mulch you have to put it on regularly. Hay plus rabbit manure breaks down even quicker.

I wash the rabbit chutes throughout most of the year in the back yard--I need to stop, do it it in the front yard. This spring I've had to mow the back yard 8 times compared to my 1x up front.
