Mulch Color

What do you find to be the most popular color your customers request in mulch installation jobs?

Please list the most popular color and state you are from as this seem to make a difference.

Red - Florida

Georgia - Pine straw is the most popular mulch here since it's so plentiful.

For Hardwood mulch - Brown or Black

Red.... Yuck, makes me want to vomit. Same goes for cypress mulch... Ewww.

Black has been the big thing the past few years. Red was big before that.

I talk my customers out of the dyed mulches or wood chips I will call them, I try to use a dark cedar mulch, just because it takes longer to fade
