Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch

It’s spring! And you know what one of my favorite things about spring is? Landscaping! I just love a beautifully manicured yard. We purchased our home a few years ago and have planted many things in our yard including Magnolia trees, a Dogwood, weeping cherries and a Japanese Maple. We also have some nice bushes along the front of our home. Every spring, we make sure to put down a fresh layer of mulch to add to the beauty of our lawn.

  5. I love Scotts products & use them in my own lawn

  6. I’ve always been a Scotts 4 step plan fan so this is a natural extension for me. I am really happy they’re sustainably produced!

  7. I haven’t tried this type of mulch before. I’ve been neglecting the flowers and really should put down some fresh mulch this year.
