My kids love helping me out in the yard. I think being out in nature makes things seem like less of a chore for them. They will help me pick up leaves and sweep. We have even pulled weeds together. They especially love the whole process of Spring planting. They think it’s fun to dig in the dirt, scoop the soil, plant seeds, water them and watch them grow. With the kids working on those tasks,I can start thinking about prepping the yard for Spring.
If you are also looking to prepare your yard for Spring, here are a few gardening supplies you may find helpful:
- Plants that can thrive in your area
- Potting soil
- Scotts Nature Scapes mulch or Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch
- Kid helpers
Scotts Nature Scape Mulch and Scotts Florida Eucalyptus Mulch can help you prep your yard for Spring. The Eucalyptus Mulch contributes to sustainable gardening and prevents weeds naturally. It’s 100% natural and contains no debris or waste materials.
When we moved to our house last year we knew that we would have to replace the mulch around our swing set. It certainly has seen better days. It is dry, faded and lets weeds through.
Simply put, it is not a fun place for kids to play and it is something of an eyesore. But replacing that old mulch with Scotts Nature Scapes mulch will give the yard a much needed facelift. It comes in 3 colors: Classic Black, Sierra Red and Deep Forest which will work perfectly with our woodsy backdrop.
Since Scotts mulch prevents weeds naturally and retains moisture, I am thinking it will be perfect to put around our rose bushes as well.
