You have to replace it every spring or every other. Depending on whether it is nugget mulch or shredded. Shredded breaks down quicker. It is really good for the soil.

Generally after seven years Pine Bark Mulch should be replaced. By this point the mulch has dried out and begun to deteriorate. It attracts slugs and worms and even birds at this point. To keep it clean and orderly just change over every 6-7 years.
