    Nice work, that black mulch is really starting to grow on me alot lately. I can't hardly find it around here though.

    I like the mulch job, but not the color, I hardly recommend black to customers because it looks like dirt. Overall nice.

    color is truly in the eye of the beholder. i am color blind so the darker the mulch, the more the plants stand out!!!! light colored mulch just does not look right as the plants blend in too much for me to see them well. customers may see that way too, to each his own.

    I just really like the red mulch in everything. To me, it helps the plants and hedges stand out more.

    eek. Red mulch is the worst. About 6-7 years ago everyone went bonkers over the stuff. It was used everywhere. No matter where you drove in town you saw red mulch and belgium block. Thank god thats over. We've all gotten smart and moved on to black or brown. I personally stay away from those too. The best mulches up here are hemlock and sweet peet. I use one or the other for all my jobs. No dye, just natural color.

    Well, around in the area that I do, a lot of people do not even have flower beds with anything in them. So, red around here you are hardly able to find. I have seen brown, and a litte bit of black. Sometimes, nothing at all, it just being dirt. But, everyone has their own opinions, and the customers really like going with the red.
