A Tip for Choosing the Mulch That's Best For You
- Visit two or three rock suppliers and collect samples of decomposed granite or crushed rock in your favorite sizes and colors. Put the samples in plastic bags and take them with you for comparison purposes later on.
- Before making a final selection, find landscapes that are mulched with each of the samples you chose. Study each landscape to determine which mulch is your favorite when used in a real landscape situation.
- Top dressing is a lot like house paint. Colors and textures may look different when they cover a large surface area.
