Springtime is the best time to reapply a fresh coat of bark mulch. It’s easier to install new, fresh bark mulch in your landscape beds before the perennials have a chance to emerge. Mulching in your beds suppresses weeds, maintains moisture, protects roots through winter, and adds nutrients to the soil as it breaks down. But fresh layer of mulch also creates the perfect backdrop to make your plants pop.
There are lots of different options: Goldenrod Shredded Mulch, a brilliant, royal gold on a shredded wood fiber. Mink Shredded Mulch, which is a very rich, dark brown shredded mulch. Red Canyon Shred has a bold, vibrant red color on a shredded wood fiber for a pop of color in your gardens. Then there is our favorite Northern Cedar Mulch–a premium mulch from Northern Minnesota and Canada. The scent is fantastic, and it holds their color longer than other natural mulches.
All it takes is a pitchfork, a wheelbarrow, and a little sweat equity to get your yard ready for the season.
