DIY Tip of the Day!
Mulching plant beds has many benefits. Mulch will prevent weed growth, hold in soil moisture and regulate soil temperature.
Do's and Don'ts of Mulching
-Don't spread your mulch more than 3-4" thick.
-Don't pile new mulch on top of old mulch. Clean out beds before spreading mulch.
-Do leave space around tree and shrubs. Piling mulch around trunks will encourage disease and insects.
-Do use a landscape fabric under your mulch. This will help prevent weeds.
And remember to visit one of our store where we have landscape fabric and a variety of bulk and bagged mulch available.
