With color choices like red, brown, and black, and materials like wood, stone, and rubber, how can you choose the right mulch for your garden without getting overwhelmed? All you have to do is follow three simple steps.
Imagine if you could wave a magic wand and minimize the need to weed, water, and fertilize your garden. Your gardening fairy-godmother, organic mulch, is ready to grant your wish!
Is inorganic mulch ever a better choice than organic mulch? Maybe you need a mulch that doesn’t blow away in high winds, float away in heavy rains, or burn down your house.
Do you struggle to understand your garden’s climate and microclimates? There’s more to it than knowing your gardening zone. Sun, shade, heat, wind, slope, precipitation, and soil type all work together to create microclimates in your yard.
Could this happen to you? You get home after a long day. You step into your backyard and harvest herbs and vegetables for tonight’s dinner. On your way back inside you pick a few flowers, and put them in a vase that brightens up your dinner table. You and your family spend an enjoyable evening of garden-to-table dining, relaxing in your beautiful, well-tended garden.
