Trying to figure out why some people like red mulch and others don't. I have red lava rocks around my house and think they look good. It's a funny issue though because that is the only red thing on my property. I think it looks ok, but not great. I'm thinking about pulling it up and placing some regular mulch down. I had a customer call for a bid. They had 8 yards of red mulch on thier property installed last year and don't like the color anymore. Want it covered with regular mulch. It's got me thinking about why to use red mulch. I know that if someone likes it, then they should use it. But from a total landscape design plan, why would someone use red mulch? Would it be because of evergreen trees that drop red needles? Or a house with red brick or other red materials? Both my home and the customers have no red materials anywhere, other than the red lava rock and mulch. I'm going to start asking visitors if they like the red lava rocks. Anyone have a helpful perspective here?
