No, our mulch is organic and will not harm them. The dye we use is a food grade dye.
No. It is against federal law to apply pesticides in such a manner. Therefore, NO mulch is EVER treated.
No, if you have a problem with termites the mulch is not the cause. In this area most termites are subterranean; since mulch is used above ground it does not attract them. It would be recommended to call an exterminator to get to the root of your problem.
Even though our dye is an all natural organic product it’s still a dye and will temporarily stain a concrete driveway. We recommend placing a tarp down on the driveway to help minimize staining.
Yes and No. If the mulch has been freshly dyed there is a possibility that a heavy downpour will cause the color to wash. For best results do not install color enhanced mulch unless it has time to dry; we recommend a full day in the sun. If the dye has set, there is no need for concern. Fluff up the mulch with a pitch fork to cover any areas that may have washed.
When figuring out the amount needed we recommend 3″-4″ thick, except for the large river stone, which should be 6′ thick. We also recommend installing the stones on top of weed fabric. We sell a commercial grade landscape fabric in 2 different sizes. Refer to the Project Calculator to figure out the amount of material needed for your job.
