What is the advantage of using Dyed Mulch ?
Dyed Mulch is regular natural Mulch dyed with a water based latex dye which acts as a preservative and helps the Mulch keep its color and resist fading from sunlight as does regular Mulch. Initially you want to place a minimum depth of 3-4 inches the first year and then just a light cover of 1-2" each year thereafter to keep the mulch layer from building up too thick because of the slower decomposition of dyed mulch.
What is the advantage of using Regular Mulch ?
Regular mulch decomposes faster than regular mulch thus providing more nitrogen and nutrition to plants and flowers but is subject to color bleaching from sunlight. For a newly established flower bed or garden the Regular Mulch should be used the 1st year before considering using Dyed Mulch to establish your plants.
