Right now I should be installing the rest of the mulch that I purchased yesterday. Half of it is on a new bed at the front of my home (also new to me). The other half is still in my car. I tend to be very fussy about mulch. I don’t stray far from cedar though (except for natural leaf compost).
But even cedar has huge variations in terms of color. If it is too orange I find it tends to clash with flower colors, but if it is too brown it looks dull with the plain greens of boxwood, etc.
What I really dislike are the dyed mulches. They seem to be very popular around here (Canada).
