    Just wondering if anyone here has done it.

    If so, what did you use??

    I saw one of the larger national chains using it on a Home Depot here last year, painting all the mulch "Home Depot" orange.

    Yeah, I know about the dyed mulch. I'm talking about taking a handheld sprayer, with something mixed, and spraying the mulch, much like if you were spraying the weeds with glyphosate.

    I never used it yet, but you can buy it in the A.M. Leonard catalog

    Sounds to me like they may have been spraying a pre-emergant called surflan it is really orange and if it is a strong mix it would look like paint and on the mulch it would hold its color.

    Sounds like a good idea. Id like to get some feedback too from some people that have used it.

    Sounds like a pretty quick easy way to make some money depending on the cost of the stuff.
