    $52.95
    More Details

    Call attention to prized plants, create formal definition, and help block weeds at the same time. The natural, unglazed terra cotta complements any landscape design. It's not winter-hardy though so, if you live in a cold climate, bring it inside before the ground freezes. If you're planning to use it within a lawn, we recommend protecting it from errant mowers or string trimmers by buffering it with an extra, outer ring of mulch.

  • 48” Coco Fiber Tree Rings, set of 2
    $99.95
    More Details

    If you're not diligent about replenishing bark mulch, it can start to look messy and start letting weeds through after just one season. These thick mulch mats are made of tightly woven coconut fibers and durable natural latex, so they stop weeds for several seasons. They reduce string-trimming chores too, because you can mow right over them.

The experts at This Old House show the wrong -- then the right -- way to mulch around a tree. Although their example uses loose bark mulch, a mulch ring made from coir or recycled rubber also accomplishes the same goal.
