When I was asked to write about Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch I couldn’t help but think about the commercial I often hear on the radio. What I remember most about the commercial, other then the accent, is Scotts Mulch is made from Eucalyptus trees which grow 4 times faster then Cypress trees.
It would be so awesome to have a yard like this:
Or more South Florida style with palm trees:
Or maybe somewhere to relax and read a good book like this:
However lawns like this do not appear overnight. It takes time and dedication and often extra help like Scotts Mulch. However I’m sure if you go pick up a bag of mulch or two you may be wondering what to do with it? First it is necessary to make sure you have the correct gardening supplies. If you are planning on adding bushes and flowers to your landscape you will want to make sure you have a shovel and/or hand shovel and your choice of flowers and/or bushes. Then it is on to working on sustainable gardening. Here are a few tips:
How to Use: Spread 3 inches deep. Keep mulch several inches from tree trunks and house foundations or other wood structures.
When to Apply: Apply around trees, shrubs, flowers or vegetables after seeds have germinated and plants have developed.
Where to Use: Apply around trees, shrubs, flowers or vegetables after seeds have germinated and plants have developed.
Where Not to Use: Avoid use: Before seeds have germinated, around underdeveloped plants, and within several inches of house foundations or other wood surfaces.
Coverage Area: A 2 cu. ft. bag will cover the following: At a depth of 2 inches, 12 sq. ft of bedding area. At a depth of 3 inches, 8 sq. ft. of bedding area. At a depth of 4 inches, 6 sq. ft. of bedding
For my non-Florida readers, Scotts Nature Scapes mulch is an option for their landscaping needs this Spring! 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.
