Mulch

How To Mulch

1.

Spray beds for weeds

One to two weeks before mulching.

2.

Unload mulch

Unload mulch (empty bags, if using) and store it on grass or bare earth while preparing beds. If storing on concrete or finished surfaces, place bulk mulch on tarp(s) to prevent any discoloring.

3.

Clean out beds

Loosen any old, compacted mulch with a rake (or remove if desired); clear out any leaves, twigs, etc.

4.

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.

5.

Avoid H2O

When applying colored mulch, allow it to dry, avoiding exposure to sprinklers or rain for an initial 24 to 48 hours; if it does rain prior to the mulch drying, rake the surface of the bed to even out the color intensity.

6.

Rinse tools when completed

This helps prevent discoloring.

7.

Clean off pavement (if necessary)

If the colorant gets on pavement or other finished surfaces, simply use a pressure washer to remove it.

8.

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.

Common Questions

Q.

Why do I need colored mulch?

Not only does colored mulch offer better UV-resistance than regular mulch, it also adds a unique appeal to your home, thanks to the vivid colors available.

Q.

Is colored mulch safe for children, pets, and plants?

Colored mulch is safe for children, pets, and the environment, and colors are thoroughly tested.

Q.

How much colored mulch do I need for my landscaping?

Bulk colored mulch is generally sold by the cubic yard, which measures 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, or by the bag, which generally equals 2 cubic feet. Mulch is typically laid out at a depth of 4 inches. To calculate how much you need, multiply the length of your bed by the width, and then multiply by .33. Divide this number by 27. That will tell you how many cubic yards you need. You will then multiply this number by 13.5 and this will tell you how many bags of mulch to purchase.

Q.

Is there anything I need to know about maintaining a colored mulch bed?

Colored mulch retains its vivid colors longer than traditional mulch. However, as with traditional mulch, you should periodically check colored mulch for compaction, and use a cultivator or rake to loosen it up. This helps prevent fungal growth and improves plant hydration by allowing air and water to pass through.

Q.

What are the benefits of colored mulch?

In addition to adding aesthetic appeal, colored mulch helps prevent weeds and retain moisture for ideal plant growth.

Q.

How long will the color last?

Colored mulch will typically maintain its color for one to two seasons, depending on the amount of direct sunlight.
