    The I-Definitely-Have-a-Use-For-You Landscape Adhesive

    When mulch is first installed it looks awesome… until the first rainstorm. Mulch-Lock® a water-based adhesive, solves this irritating problem by "locking" in the mulch and other ground cover, such as wood chips, pine straw, gravel, sand and dirt. Impressively, Mulch-Lock still allows water and nutrients through the coating to any desired vegetation that it's sprayed around. Amazingly, the treated mulch also retains its natural color longer into the season because of the adhesive blocking out UV rays that inevitably discolor it.

    While it feels like industrial-strength hairspray, the samples I inspected looked pretty impressive. For clubhouse and poolside landscaping, Mulch-Lock can save a ton of labor keeping these high-profile areas looking perfect. It comes in a ready-to-use, 1.5-gallon sprayer bottle for $29.95. You can also buy concentrate in a 2.5-gallon jug for $119.90 or a 52-gallon drum for $1,049, which can simply be applied with a typical hand sprayer.
