Scoop and spread mulch faster with this helpful tip.

Fork lift

Don’t struggle spreading mulch! It keeps soil moist and weeds out, but picking out handfuls from the bag can leave a messy trail. Try using a pair of turkey roaster forks (often found around Thanksgiving) like the ones below, instead. They help make distribution neat and quick, even in the small spaces between shrubs and perennials.
