AM Leonard sells Mulch Magic in half gallon containers.Expect around 1500-1600 sq ft of coverage per bottle for a good color. Rinse it off of anything you overspray before it dries, though. Works really well, and makes a nice add on for mid summer between spring and fall mulchings. Turn the mulch over a little bit for the best look / coverage. The drier and older the mulch, the more colorant it will eat. At 1.75 cents per square foot cost, it's not bad..
It's actually the same type of dye used in the injection systems in tub grinders. It's not a paint at all. It's completely water soluable, but it's best to rinse it off of siding or walks before it dries just to be safe. We charge a min. per square foot rate.Commercial clients love it, and considering a new mulch install with no weed control can run over $ .85 per square foot, it's an easy sell to high visibility clientele.
's called water
Seriously though, what do you think that stuff will do to the plants? Paint would kill them if it got on the foliage, and it can't be good for the roots. I agree with Jonholland, seems like a way for a cheap customer to win.
Why not top dress with another 2-3" that way the plants will have more nutrients to pull from and it's new.
