What is mulch?
Technically, mulch is any protective covering spread over soil to help reduce unwanted weeds and erosion while providing benefits such as soil enrichment and moisture retention. When we say “mulch,” we are talking about the organic type typically made from chipped or shredded trees as it is the most widely used in our region.
The color of mulch can vary from untreated, earthy tones to artificially dyed red, black, and even purple. Of course, color is a matter of preference, but our favorite is chocolate. This dark brown mulch compliments our natural landscape and holds it’s rich color far longer than untreated varieties.
