Spring Forward with Scotts Florida Select Mulch

We just bought a house with a lot of yard…a lot like almost 2 acres! I have neer been more excited to get my hands dirty and start the process of building a huge veggie and flower garden. I’ve got most of my gardening supplies already from my potted gardens that I’ve had over the past few years.

Of course with gardening and ladscaping comes the need to protect the beds. Well, I am really excited to learn about and use Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch to do just that.

Here is just a sample of our back yard:

Our garden in our former house.

Eucalyptus Mulch is a sustainable Cypress alternative, grown in Florida, for Florida!

Eucalyptus Mulch is the best option for your landscape because it is:

  • SUSTAINABLE: Sustainably-harvested and plantation grown Eucalyptus is considered a renewable resource because it re-grows up to 4-times faster than Cypress.*
  • NATURAL: Made from 100% plantation-grown Eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus Mulch is guaranteed free from any construction, demolition, pallet, or other waste materials.
  • EFFECTIVE: Prevents weeds naturally** while helping to conserve soil moisture and moderate soil temperature.
  • LOCAL: 100% Florida-grown – helps support your local economy.
