Eco-responsible homeowners are always on the lookout for
alternative products to replace wasteful or unsustainable items that are
commonly used at home—something

Clean Up Your Lawn Landscaping with Rubber Mulch
Weed overgrowth is a thorn in the side of many avid
landscapers. While a douse of weed killer might do the trick, there are many
concern about how such products affect the health of your lawn, your pets, and
the people living in your home.
Using mulch in
landscaping provides an alternative to harmful weed killers, but it is not
necessarily an environmentally friendly option. Conventional oak bark mulches
are often treated with products that can be harmful to your soil. This is where
pour-in-place rubber mulch provides the ultimate solution. This product is
versatile, since you decide the shape, and it’s manufactured entirely out of
rubber that would normally find its way to landfills.

that conventional gardening products are often full of chemicals that could
jeopardize your health and the health of your soil.
Rubber mulch in gardens easily blocks troublesome weed
overgrowth while still allowing water to seep into the soil below. Whether you
are interested in a pre-made mulch mat or the versatility of the pour-in-place
rubber mulch, Conserv-A-Store has green options to keep weeds under control in

Adding landscaping around the trees of a lawn is a common
practice in home, park and commercial landscaping, but since many of the

tree rings come in a wide variety of sizes that are the perfect finishing touch
for the trees in your lawn.
Small steps are key to living a more environmentally
sustainable life. It’s as simple as starting with one area of your home, such
as your lawn, and finding replacements for the most harmful products you are
using. By doing so, you will increase your sense of eco-responsibility and
reduce your negative impact on the environment in the blink of an eye!
