People actually use red mulch in residential settings? Around here I only ever see it at fast-food restaurants...

Seems down south is where its popular. I personally hate it but man i make good money installing the stuff.

Looks good but they sure went cheap on plants.

I use red anywhere a customer wants it. I like it because to me it brings everything out.

I thought that the bed could have used a few more bigger shrubs in such. Just my opinion. But man, looks good to me. You passed the first test.

Are those Nadinas in the front and Yaupons in the back?

Never used it on a residential job. . . I did spread 12 yards of red as part of a commercial design last year (playground area).

Honestly, I prefer good old brown hardwood mulch.

Looks good though, 1999frontier.

This was actually done last year. Yes they are Nandinas in the front and Soft Touch(I think thats right) in the back. We just put more down a couple weeks ago and I edged around with a deeper edge. I didn't take any pics this time though. What other plants or shrubs would look good around the house?

Damn, that's cheaper than I get it in bulk ($33/yard).

My wife would say azalea, gardina, lantana, butterfly bush and camellia.

I think it looks good. Yea down south we love that stuff. Im in Texas and on my street alone there are about 5 of us w/red mulch. But I'll be changing soon due to the same reason.

Man, those nandinas are going to look good through the winter and spring when the leaves turn red.
