Mulch, like wood chips, pine needles, and sawdust, is an organic material. It will need to be laid down every year since it disintegrates over time. Rocks don’t break down and can be laid down in your garden bed once and then just added to once in a while as maintenance.
With so many varieties of mulch available, it can be difficult to choose. From dyed mulch to pine needle mulch, we cover the mulch basics to help you select which one will work best in your landscape.
