Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch Review
Spring is here! I’m betting many of you have plans on getting your garden and yards in shape for Spring. We are getting ready to re-mulch around our plants and trees, and I figured why not share the tips I’ve picked up with you my awesome readers?!
First off, there are some great Scotts Mulch products available. The one I’m impressed with it Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch! This mulch is Sustainable and you know what that means…sustainable gardening. Did you know that sustainably-harvested and plantation grown Eucalyptus is considered a renewable resource because it re-grows up to 4-times faster than Cypress? Cool right? Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch is made from 100% plantation-grown Eucalyptus trees, and this stuff is guaranteed not to have any construction, demolition, pallet, or other waste materials in it. And…this is my favorite part…A three-inch layer of Eucalyptus mulch prevents weeds naturally by blocking growth and access to sunlight when you have a 3 inch! The less weeding I have to do the better!
For those of you that don’t live in Florida, you can try out Scotts Nature Scapes mulch. It comes in a variety of textures 3 different colors options: Sierra Red, Classic Black, and Deep Forest Brown. This mulch is made from natural forest products, which means no waste wood! Great products for keeping your lawn in shape all year long!
