Curb Appeal Week: How To Refresh Flower Beds

Goodbye weeds, hello mulch and voila you’ve got gorgeous flower beds!

It’s day three of Curb Appeal Week and by now we hope you have realized just how easy it is to get your yard looking gorgeous with help from our friends at Scotts®, Miracle-Gro®, Ortho® and Roundup®.

Spring is a time where our senses are woken from their winter slumber from the smell of fresh cut lawn, sight of blooming flowers, sounds of birds happily chirping,  and feel of a lush lawn between our toes there is nothing that can quite compare. Here are just two more ways to get your garden looking fabulous.

Tip 1: Mulch for a Fresh, Clean Look

SCOTTS® NATURE SCAPES® COLOR ENHANCED MULCH keeps your garden or landscape looking fresh with year-long color, guaranteed! A three-inch layer of mulch naturally prevents weeds by blocking growth and access to sunlight.  It also helps the soil retain moisture.

“One of the easiest ways to enhance the beauty and performance of any garden or landscape bed is by applying mulch.  Mulching adds rich color and a manicured look to your landscape.” – Phil Dwyer, Scientist at ScottsMiracle-Gro.

Tip 2: Kill Weeds in your Flower Beds

ROUNDUP® SURE SHOT™ WAND helps kill your weeds in 3 easy steps without the hassle of hand pulling. Step 1. Reach: Sure Shot™ Wand extends 2 feet so there is no more bending over. Step 2. Target: Protective shield fits over the weeds to help contain the spray and protect nearby flowers and plants from damage. Step 3. So Long Weeds: Roundup® branded products kill weeds to the roots so they don’t come back.
