Mulch – Nothing More Discouraging to Weeds

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Everyone knows or practically everyone knows, that fall is the ideal time to get the lawn in shape for the winter. We gave ours an early feeding with fertilizer, and seeded some of the spots that had suffered during the summer. Black dirt was lightly sprinkled over the new seed, and it is surprising what a quick start and vigorous growth it made.

I don’t think our lawn has ever gone through the winter in better shape, and SOON it will get another light feeding. In spite of everything, there always seem to be a few spots that show up bare this time of year. I have to walk out over the lawn to find them, but they are there. Runners will fill many of these spots during the coming weeks, but I like to give them an assist.

Good seed is too expensive to waste. It doesn’t pay to sow anything but GOOD seed. Weeds will fill up the bare spots, without your sowing them. So, almost any time now, I’ll go over the lawn with a bucket of seed and a bucket of black dirt. (If you don’t have good weed-free black dirt you had better use peat moss, milled spagnum moss, or you can use vermiculite) .

It’s always good to have some experience in landscaping or gardening before you try to take on a large project in your yard. Although using mulch and other yard improvement tools isn’t difficult, you should plan ahead and learn as much as you can before taking it on.

You may have enough funds to hire a professional landscaper to get the job done for you, even if it is a larger yard that will need plenty of mulch and topsoil. Believe it or not, some smaller and affordable local landscaping companies can do just as good a job as larger companies.

If you live in a residential neighborhood or own your own building, then you know how common the need for landscaping is in today’s world. This means that there will always be plenty of options to choose from when it comes to buying and using topsoil, mulch and stone for your project.
