Seeds - Soils - Mulch
The perfect landscape starts with the perfect soil. Potting soils provide a loose, well-draining planting medium. The next step is to choose the right grass seeds to plant. Grass seeds are available in different varieties for different climates. Choosing the right grass for your climate is essential. Un-blended grasses do well in warm season southern states where temperatures typically exceeds 80°F. In cool season states, a blend of permanent grasses is best. Landscaping mulch will increase plant life and the appearance of your landscape.

Red Colored Mulch is a recycled product made from scrap pallets and virgin wood which is chip-ground into strips about ½" by 2-3 inches long and colored red. It does lose its color after about 2 years. A fresh annual cover keeps it looking very red. When it is dumped on the drive it will leave a red stain so plan accordingly if you have a nice cement driveway. A tarp will help keep some of the red off the drive, but makes shoveling more difficult. Rain will make it bleed so move it before the rains come. Dumping it in the grass will keep the drive clean but it is very difficult to get it all out of the lawn.Learn More
