The Benefits of Color Enhanced Mulch

Mulch is a layer of material placed over the soil to hold in water and discourage weeds while allowing nutrients and air to enter the soil.   Color Enhanced Mulch  lets water penetrate evenly, allowing moisture to reach all sections of your soil beds equally. Other mulches absorb water on contact and don't allow the ground to breathe properly.

Mulches can prevent loss of water from the soil by evaporation. Moisture moves by capillary action to the surface and evaporates if the soil is not covered by a mulch. Mulches suppress weeds when the mulch material itself is weed free and applied deeply enough to prevent weed germination. A more uniform soil temperature can be maintained by mulching. The mulch acts as an insulator that keeps the soil cool under intense sunlight and warm during cold weather and can add to the beauty of the landscape by providing a cover of uniform colour and interesting texture to the surface.

Color Enhanced Mulch  has no fungus or bacteria.  This lowers the possibility of mushroom growth.

Color Enhanced Mulch  has no " tar layer" build-up.  Tar Layer is the residue of acids that accumulate after repeated applications of mulch without cultivation.  Once this residue occurs, water will not penetrate the soil effectively.


Mulch entire beds of shrubs, trees, annuals, perennials and/or ground cover. Mulching is an extremely important practice for establishing plantings. Mulch helps to conserve moisture in the root ball of the new soil. Mulch also helps discourage weeds that can compete with new plants for water and nutrients. In addition to being useful around plants, mulch can be used as a ground cover for walks, pathways, driveways, play and natural areas.

Mulch can be applied around established plants at any time. Newly planted plants should be mulched after they are planted and thoroughly watered. Organic mulches will gradually decompose and need replenishing to function effectively as a mulch. How often this needs to be done will depend on the mulching material used. Pine bark and wood chips break down very slowly and need only to be replenished every two or three years.
