Always looking for advantages for lawn care in Denver, I’ve decided to use this odd spell of rain here in Colorado by doing some mulching. Mulch is a natural sponge, and by laying it now, I am ensuring it will soak up water to its fullest. All the rain has absolutely brought my lawn to its greenest and fullest, but I know Denver lawn care requires a lot of long term thinking. While it may be rainy now, I now the summer sun will soon bring with it dry conditions, and possible sun damage. Mulching now should take care of this. It will soak up water my lawn can later use to keep itself hydrated.
My wife was interested in dyed mulch, and bringing extra some color to our lawn. I have to admit, some of them looked pretty nice. There was orange mulch and red mulch that looked particularly interesting. However, because the mulches are dyed they do not soak up water as easily, and are made to be more decorative.
In the end I decided to go with an organic lawn and bought recycled mulch. From there it just took some investigation into where to buy mulch in bulk. Buying mulch in bulk meant spending more, but ultimately saving money in the long run, as it usually is with buying things it bulk. After looking over some bulk mulch prices, I bought the mulch, and even got bulk mulch delivery thrown in, and started doing my lawn mulching.
It wasn’t amazing working out in the rain laying the mulch, but I managed to find some nice weather between the storms to get out in the yard and get the work done. I have to say, even with the brown recycled mulch, the lawn has more color. I know how tricky Denver lawn care can be, and I am very glad to have gotten this done, and to know I have put down some great protection for my lawn as summer approaches.
If anyone else has some great summer Denver lawn care tips, I would love to hear them!
