Recycled Rubber Mulch Mat – 3 ft x 20 ft $229.99 at Conservastore.com
A great way to save water for your garden and yard as well as help eliminate weed growth is to try this recycled rubber mulch pad. It is an inch thick and can be cut with a utility knife. It should last up to five years with ordinary use. The roll weighs 180 lbs so shipping costs may be a consideration. If you order 3 or more they will give you a break of some sort. From the photo on their website, it has a naturalistic brownish coloration that shouldn’t be too jarring in the garden, but personally – unless I had a huge space in my yard or garden that I wanted to cover, I wouldn’t bother with it as I prefer the look of a natural mulch. But it would make sense for many other situations where you didn’t want to conserve water and eliminate weeds.
