Do you follow me on Facebook?
You should, because then you’d know why I’ve been MIA this past week.
I’ve been unplugged.
No, I’m not a robot…although sometimes it does feel like my brain short circuits…
I took a little time out. A time out from social media life, and emails, and reading other blogs.
It was lovely.
I did a lot of movie time with my daughter, and hosted get togethers for her and her friends. I took extra long bubble baths, and watched movies I hadn’t seen in a while, and I also played in the garden, something I haven’t done in months…
We had weeds starting to pop up all over the garden beds, and although they’re small now, I like to get a handle on them before letting them get out of control again like when we first moved into this place.
If you notice weeds starting to pop up, chances are it’s time to add some more mulch.
Mulch should always be at a depth of 3 inches, so it maintains moisture (less watering) prevents weeds, and will create a groomed landscape all year long.
I was recently introduced to an interesting product specifically for Floridians like myself.
Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch promotes sustainable gardening because it is made from harvested plantation grown Eucalyptus trees grown in Florida, and because Eucalyptus re-grows up to 4 times faster than Cypress trees, it’s considered a renewable resource.
When it comes to giving your yard the curb appeal everyone wants, you’re going to want to make sure you have the correct gardening supplies. Things like…
- different varieties of bushes
- perrenials and annuals
- good gardening soil
- Scotts Nature Scapes mulch
- assortment of shovels, hoes, rakes
- gardening gloves
- hat to protect yourself from the sun
Are all essential to creating a beautiful landscape.
Oh and since we’re on the topic of curb appeal…I’ve been getting tons and tons of emails lately with questions regarding my stone stenciled walkway.
I just wanted to touch note and tell you that it’s still holding up beautifully!
Here’s what it looks like as of now…
And don’t worry for my non-Florida readers, I haven’t forgotten about you! Scott’s Nature Scapes has you covered if you’re looking to spruce up your yard this spring…
I’m partial to the black, you’ll see why on Monday…
Whether it’s completely revamping your garden, or just adding another layer of mulch like us, spring is the time to do it, and if you haven’t already started, now is the time!
Are you working on any gardening projects right now? I’d love to hear all about it! And don’t forget to check back on Monday… I finally have an herb garden and can’t wait to show you!
