Although mulching a tree bed helps keep out weeds and grass, the shredded bark can also tempt neighborhood animals to dig in your landscaping, and leave a trail of wood chips strewn over the lawn. For an ever-orderly yard, consider a permanent mulch ring for small landscaping trees. The recycled-rubber mat keeps out weeds, lets in water and air, dissuades meddlesome squirrels, and looks fresh all year round. Available at Plow & Hearth; $19.95.
