It’s that time of year – when you find yourself bouncing back and forth between rooting on your teams and racing outside during halftime to get in some yard work under the bright spring sunshine. It’s Mulch Madness.
It’s also the busiest time of the year for Lowe’s, as customers come in droves to stock up on the spring products that will make their yard the star of their street. Turns out, there are some fan favorites across the U.S. when it comes to the top products purchased in each state. According to Lowe’s data from spring of 2018, mulch and patio stones reign supreme for the majority of the country with annuals holding their ground in North Dakota, Oklahoma, Hawaii and – surprise – Alaska. Wyoming was the only standout with 6-Pack Special Value plants being the most purchased product in that state.
Whether you’re buying a lot or a little, almost everyone has mulled over mulch at some point when it comes to sprucing up for springtime. What color do you go with: black, brown or red? Last year’s spring data shows most of the U.S. prefers brown mulch, a handful of the east coast states like black, and some of the southern states (and North Dakota) lean toward red.
No matter which color is your favorite, if you want it to hold its color a little longer, try Scotts Nature Scapes Color Enhanced Mulch. (Hint: It’s on sale April 4 – 17. Five bags for $10!)
What spring project are you taking on this year? Lowe’s has plenty of Spring Black Friday deals to help you do it right for less. These deals begin April 4 and will run through April 17.
