I have a customer that wants me to put new mulch down in her flower beds in front of her home, she just had mulch put down last year she says but it looks horrible!! Dried out faded and in some areas it almost looks like press board the way it has clumped together in big chunks. I recently cleaned out all these beds and worked the old mulch and even removed some of it. My question is what do you guys primarily use on a routine mulch job? Cypress mulch, shredded brown pine mulch, shredded hardwood mulch??? Any input would be appreciated. One more thing she does not really have a prefrence but I am quite sure cost will be important to her. Thanks folks!
