    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.
