Keep your landscaping beautiful all season long with Scotts® Nature Scapes® Deep Classic Black - guaranteed not to fade. Beauty aside, it improves soil moisture retention and helps prevent weeds. What's more, it's made from 100% natural forest products so it enriches the soil with organic matter as it degrades.
Clean out your beds - pull all weeds, rake out all leaves and trimmings. Cultivate any compacted soil, amend with Miracle-Gro® premium garden soil using a roto-tiller or hand cultivator (depending on size). Edge your beds using an edging shovel or power edger. Use your garden hose as a guide to create professional looking curves. Rake exposed soil area to smooth out any large lumps. Add any plants, trees or shrubs according to planting instructions. Pour mulch directly from bag using your hands or a rake to distribute to an even layer 2 - 3" (5 - 7.5 cm) thick over all exposed soil and around plants. NOTE: when placing mulch around trees - DO NOT mound it up around trunk. Too much mulch near the trunk can damage your trees. Extend a 2 - 3" layer of mulch to at least the drip line. Water thoroughly.
Apply every 2 to 3 years depending on the natural depletion rate.
Use on all landscaped areas, flower and vegetable gardens, around trees and shrubs. Also excellent for covering pathways and playgrounds.
Avoid use : Before seeds have germinated, around underdeveloped plants, and within several inches of house foundations or other wood surfaces.
