Colored Mulch will add a new dimension of color and curb appeal to your business or home and offers better UV-resistance than regular mulch, it helps prevent weeds, and retains moisture for ideal plant growth. Our colored mulch will maintain its color for one to two seasons, depending on the amount of direct sunlight. We offer Dark Walnut as our preferred color due to its natural look against the backdrop of the landscape. Additional colors are available with minimum order amounts which our professional sales staff can assist with.

How Is Colored Mulch Made?
Our colored mulch is made through a multi-step technical process when the wood is delivered to our processing facility. The wood is then sorted by type and then enters one of our grinders for processing which creates smaller wood fibers passing through various size screens. The mulch then enters a coloring system, whereby ultra-concentrated, environmentally safe colorant is mixed with water and applied to the wood fibers. The colorant completely encapsulates the wood, ensuring maximum adherence and UV protection. The mulch is then transported in bulk to our businesses and homeowners or picked up onsite at the facility by landscapers or homeowners.
Tips On How To Mulch
Creating a beautiful appearance with colored mulch at your home or business is not a difficult task. Just follow these simple steps:
• Spray landscape beds for weeds: One to two weeks before mulching. • Unload Mulch: Depending on the volume or delivery type place bulk mulch on a tarp on concrete or finished surfaces. • Clean out beds: Loosen any old, compacted mulch with a rake (or remove if desired); clear out any leaves, twigs, etc. • Spread mulch: Spread the colored mulch over the existing loosened mulch or bare ground. Make sure the colored mulch is spread evenly and to a depth of two to four inches. It should slope away from structures for proper water runoff. • Avoid H2O: When applying colored mulch, allow it to dry, avoiding exposure to sprinklers or rain an initial 24-48 hours; if it does rain prior to the mulch drying, rake the surface of the bed to even out the color intensity. • Maintenance: After a few weeks, check the mulch for compaction; if needed, use a rake or cultivator to loosen it up. A couple of inches of fresh mulch should be applied annually to brighten your landscape for the coming season.
