What color are you trying to get? I have sucessfully colored mulch red using iron oxide, it's my secret for mulching around pine trees to lower soil Ph.

Was it cost effective? Does it hold color well? Was it hard to do?

my experince on dying mulch was that u had to purchase a dying attachment for the grinder. it mixes while you grind, then you have to cover it for 3 days. it can not get wet by any means otherwise the dye wont stay.

I dont know a whole lot about dying mulch, but i can attest to the fact it needs to be covered after being died. we have a mulch blower unit, and for some reason if we blow mulch in a steady rain the color tends to run right out!
