Come April, garden-lovers are usually most excited about all the things they can plant — everything from fast-growing flower seeds to flowers that grow from bulbs you can plant in spring. Those are certainly the tasks that keep me daydreaming! But there are lots of other less sexy garden tasks that you can do this month to help your plants live their best lives. One big one? Refreshing your mulch, which helps prevent weeds, helps keep plants hydrated, and even insulates them from extreme heat and cold.

Great news if you’re reading this and grumbling to yourself that you’d rather spend that money and time on a new crop of veggies: This week, The Home Depot is offering mulch at a bargain price of five for $10, so it’s the best time to knock this chore off your list.

The Scotts Earthgro Mulch deal is part of The Home Depot’s “Spring Black Friday,” so it’s not the only thing on sale — but if you’re only going to get one thing, make it this. This mulch is ordinarily priced at $3.97 per bag, so the sale price is a little less than half off.

What makes this particular mulch special is its low-fade coloring. Scotts says that its mulch — available in black, red, and the traditional brown — will maintain its color for 12 months, meaning it will look fresh for longer.

Even if you’re not an avid gardener, it’s worth picking up a few bags while they’re on sale. Spreading new mulch is one quick way to instantly boost curb appeal since it makes beds look neat and well maintained. You don’t even have to plant anything new to go with it! The vibrant color of fresh mulch will make everything around it look revitalized, too.

The sale on Scotts Earthgro mulch is active from April 18 through April 28, meaning you have two whole weekends to pick up a few bags and get to work. Not sure how much you’ll need? Use this mulch and top soil calculator to figure out how much you’ll need to buy. Happy mulching!
