Will deep mulch cause rot?

I hate weeds and more so I hate weeding.  
I Have pulled up the black plastic sheeting this summer, after 2 years, to reveal a beautiful blank canvas all those dandy-lions are completely gone in what was supposed to be a lawn.    Not using it for a new lawn but are planting it up with whatever we can find, lavender, rosemary, geranium and blackcurrent bush.  
Have been shredding the privet hedge and making lots of shreddings.  Decided to pour the shreddings around the blackcurrent bushes 6 - 8 inches deep.  To try to stop the weeds.  OH is concerned the blackcurrent bushes will rot.  I don't think they will.
