Red Mulch

This mulch is a by-product of the lumber industry. It is not from recycling of pallets, decks or other waste streams but a natural wood product. This way you know you are getting a recycled product that is then colored for looks. It creates a distinct look that contrasts with the lawn and plants.  

Our red colored mulch is a double ground product to avoid large chunks and form a consistent texture. There have been some studies that show red plastic mulch can help the growth of some varieties of vegetable plants but in this case it is mainly a question of taste and what the person likes in how a mulched landscape bed looks. This product does the same as all other mulches in helping to control weeds in the garden or landscape beds that are mulched. 

Red Colored mulch is one of the options we offer, for a different look check our Eco-mulch, which has a dark brown to black color and has been weathered to produce the color it has. For other details or questions on our red mulch call the Mulch Guy at 203-677-3400 we also deliver the product in the central part of Connecticut.
