I'm looking for the darkest (black/brown), bark mulch and shredded mulch I can find. I need both items and need a large quantity please advise.

The darkest mulches are actually dyed to that distinctive dark color so it will stay dark after application. (Natural mulches may start out brown but typically soon weather to a silvery gray or in the case of pine bark, a reddish tone.) Your best bet for quantity would be to purchase loose mulch in bulk by the cubic yard. Contact your landscaper or check your local yellow pages for a landscape supply yard or similar sources. Or, your local Home Depot store might be able to refer you. Good luck with your search!
