This is the perfect time of year to prepare your garden for the warmer months.
After the long dry winter, now is when you can take advantage of the recent showers and warmth and get your garden beds ready for summer.
The first step to locking in the precious moisture is to mulch. And generally, when people think mulch, they tend to automatically think 'bark'.
But have you ever considered using a decorative pebble instead?
Sunshine Coast Pebbles
Decorative pebbles are not only functional, but beautiful to look at in your garden. The advantage of using pebbles rather than a bark to mulch your garden beds is that unlike bark, pebbles do not break down over time. So you don't have to replace them every year.
Pebbles are clean, and easy to apply.
If you are planning to use pebbles as a mulch, there are a few important steps you will want to follow to get the best results and to keep those pesky weeds from over-running your garden beds.
Once some of this water subsides, you might be in the market for some pavers or steppers to create walkways, outdoor living zones or definition around your home.
We have a new range of beautiful, natural stone steppers and pavers in the yard that can provide a practical and timeless solution where you want to create walkways, or create definition or hard outdoor living areas around your garden.
We’ve had some much needed rain, and it is a very good time to get in to those garden beds, pull out the weeds, and top up the beds with a nice thick blanket of mulch. There are lots of different mulches to choose from and we have put together a quick run down of our top 5 tree mulches to give you an idea of some of what types of applications they suit best.
