The Q&A Archives: Mulch

Question: I heard about a mulch that keeps the weeds away for up to 3 to 6 months. Does Home Depot carry anything like this and is it something that really does keep away the weeds? Also if you do carry something like this, what is the cost?


Answer: There's a brand called Eco-Cover which is a weed suppressant, but it isn't anything Home Depot carries at this time. However, nearly any thick mulch will suppress weeds. Or, you can lay a weed barrier (available at Home Depot) and top it with a couple of inches of mulch material to keep weeds from sprouting.

Hope this information helps!
