My home is being treated for termites. The serviceman told me NOT to use a mulch that contains wood products next to my house. Please recommend an alternative that will look like dark brown mulch.

You might consider a brown gravel over weed barrier fabric. Cocoa shells are another option, if they are available in your area. (Ask your serviceman if these are acceptable--that is, not attractive to termites.)
