Double Hammered Natural Brown Mulch

Double Hammered Natural Brown Mulch

This is the natural brown color of double-hammered hardwood. It can vary in color from a medium brown to a dark brown, almost black. The longer it has been composted the darker it gets. Years ago when this mulch was allowed to age for several years it would become black. Rarely is mulch allowed to age that long anymore. This mulch will break down faster and provide nutrients for the plants so it is the most beneficial. It also will have to be replaced sooner because of the same reason. As it weathers on top it will lighten in color but underneath it gets darker. Simply rake it or turn it to make it appear darker. 

Hardwood Black Mulch

Hardwood Black Mulch

This used to be the the most sought after mulch because of its benefits for plants and its attractive color. Today true black mulch is impossible to find so in order to meet the demand of consumers the color has been mimicked by adding ash to the brown mulch. The ash does not harm the plants and really makes plants stand out on the velvet black mulch. The down side to this mulch is it dusty, will fade over time and will leave some residue. Even with the negatives listed it is still one of our most popular mulches. Some people refer to this as black beauty.

Pine straw makes an excellent mulch, especially for plants that need more acidity, like azalea, roses, and many shade loving plants. Pine straw is easy to put out, decomposes quickly and looks nice initially. Unfortunately pine straw fades fairly quickly and can attract more insects than most other mulches.
