The Q&A Archives: Choosing Mulch Color?

Question: We recently soded about a 1/2 acre of our backyard using Bermuda grass (darker green). We also added a deck and fence to close the back yard in. The fence and deck are standard

Answer: Carrie,

I personally would not worry about that dark mulch. I think it looks natural and probably will lighten up a little on the surface anyway. You could always go ahead and finish the job and then decide over the next few weeks how you feel about it. If need by you could add a lighter mulch over the top later or even some reddish cedar or other such chips.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
