Colored Mulch is Helping Defy the Drought

When severe drought hits a region, there are huge impacts on vegetation and landscape. As new plantings try desperately to just take root, and established landscapes struggle to survive, mulch is playing a positive role in preserving precious moisture while helping enhance plant growth.

A cost-effective solution.

Moisture retention notwithstanding, landscape mulch also helps improve soil structure, moderates temperatures and provides nutrients that enhance plant growth. The many collective benefits derived from including organic wood mulches to both residential and commercial landscapes are likely to exceed the product and application costs.
