I have often thought that the best way to get rid of weeds is to become attached to them because any plant that I want to prosper seems to struggle to survive. Unfortunately, I do not care much for weeds, and the more I despise them the more they seem to thrive. Getting rid of weeds can be backbreaking work, but there is an easy way to control weeds and beautify your yard in the process.
Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch prevents weeds naturally. The exclusive Color Guard brand maintains its color throughout the year. Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch is made from byproducts of the timber industry and not from reprocessed waste, so there are no materials from old pallets or building products.
A three inch layer of mulch is needed to deny the weeds access to sunlight which will prevent weed growth. As the mulch decomposes over time it will provide organic matter to the soil which will benefit the plants that it helps to beautify.
I chose the Classic Black color which looks great with the white vinyl siding and Navajo Red back deck. The Classic Black color is also a great match for the black shingles on my home. If you are looking for ideas to control weeds and beautify your yard at the same time then Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch may be the product for you.
Update On Jun 03, 2010: I had a single bag of a competitor product. Both products started with a similar sharp color. The competitor product has already stated to fade while the Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch still looks good. It is easy to see with a side by side comparison which product is superior.
