Getting a spring cleanup and other professional lawn care services is crucial to protecting your landscaping and outdoor space.

Main Types of Mulch

Color Enhanced Black Mulch

This mulch is created by adding a black dye to natural wood chips or shredded bark. The dye used in the process is typically made from a carbon-based substance, making it safe for plants and the environment.

The dark color of black mulch not only looks visually appealing but also helps to retain moisture in the soil by reducing evaporation, making it a practical choice for gardeners.

Color Enhanced Brown Mulch
