My yard needs some help. I can’t wait to get out there and do some serious work on it. But since it’s like 40 degrees and rainy out there right now, it will not be today! 🙂 But, it will be soon! On my list of things to get for the yard…..veggies for the garden. I think we’re going to go with lots of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, basil, cilantro, rosemary, pumpkins and watermelon. Of course, I forgot to start seeds, so I’ll buy plants from the high school greenhouse, again! : ) Yay for sustainable gardening! 🙂 We also need some gardening supplies, a few shrubs (i’m thinking boxwood) and I would like some really, really tall ornamental grasses….or a privacy fence. 😉 (thanks, slacker neighbors.) I also need to split and move some hostas around. Mulch is on the list too, for sure.
I love the way yards looks with nice fresh mulch. This year I’d love to try Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch. It’s sustainable, natural and effective. It’s made from 100% Florida plantation-grown Eucalyptus trees. And it’s renewable resource because Eucalyptus grows 4 times faster than Cypress. Mulch prevents weeds naturally while helping conserve soil moiture and temperature!
Just spread mulch 3 inches deep to control weeds and moiture and make your yard look fantastic. Apply around trees and shrubs, flowers and veggies after seeds have germinated and plants have developed.
One 2 cu. ft. bag of mulch will cover between 8-12 square feet of bedding area.
I really like the way black mulch looks. Although, this Deep Forest looks nice, too.
SInce I don’t live in Florida, I will stick with the Scotts Nature Scapes mulch. It comes in 3 different colors: Classic Black, Sierra Red, and Deep Forest Brown and they’re natural forest products – no waste wood and come in a variety of textures. Scotts Mulch helps to maintain moisture, prevent weeds, and create a groomed landscape all year long. Sounds great, right?
Check out these pretty yards. I just love black mulch. I wish these yards were mine!
