Gardening has been my hobby for as long as I can remember. Back when I was just a little kid I would scoop up some soil and transfer them across our yard. I also loved picking out some flowers and creating a bunch which I would give to my mother. I guess you could say it all started there. Because of that I was a pretty messy child. Growing up I developed a love for things that grew and I always tried to find the best products to use in gardening that would help the development of my precious plants and flowers. Little did I know that I would one day stumble across a product that didn’t seem like much but seemed very useful to me, this product was rubber mulch.
As a gardener, I always wanted to find a way to boost the development of whatever I was growing on my own garden. I tried fertilizers and all the other stuff. It seemed like there was nothing else for me to add to my garden to I lost thought about it. At this point in time I wanted to focus on the aesthetics of my garden and wanted to make it look better.
In my goal of making my garden look even better, I was looking for some tips. Because of that, I decided to visit my grandmother and my cousin who lived in the countryside. My grandmother always loved tending to her garden, when I was around 7 years old I stayed with her for the summer where I learned quite a lot of gardening.
When I arrived, my grandmother and cousin where working at the garden as usual. I didn’t inform them of my visit so it came as a surprise really. I really loved how they had arranged the flowers. When we had dinner that night, I prepared to ask questions about how I could work on my garden. My grandmother said she would show me the next day because she was too tired tonight to do anything else. I wasn’t in much of a rush so I didn’t really mind at all.
The next morning, we went to the garden and my grandmother showed me all her flowers. I couldn’t help but notice there was some chippings that seemed to be made out of wood. She said that was called mulch. She told me all about the mulch and not only does it benefit her plants, but it can be used decoratively as well. I made sure to take note of that product.
When I went back home, the first thing I did was go to the garden store and looked for some mulch. What I found there was recycled rubber mulch. I asked the people there about it being different from the wooden mulch I saw at my grandmother’s place. It turns out that rubber mulch actually is better than wood mulch in so many ways. Rubber mulch even last a lot longer and in addition to that, it comes in a variety of different colors which you can get creative with on your garden.
