If freshening up your Central Florida landscape with mulch is on your Fall “to do list”,  you will want to know the 4 most popular choices for the year. 

There are many benefits of mulch, from making your landscape look amazing, keep the soil insulated from the head and cold, discourage weed growth, keep the soil moist, and release vital nutrients into the soil. 

With more people spending time at home, landscape projects have skyrocketed. Here are the most popular choices. 

Red And Brown Mulch

By far the most used mulches are the brown and red pine bark. 

Brown mulch has a rich natural color and come in a variety of sizes to fit your needs. Perfect for flower beds, under trees where there is a lot of shade, and walking paths. 

Red mulch offers a distinct color. A striking contrast when paired with light color plants. 

River Rock

River rock comes in white, tan, and hues. They have a smooth texture and a natural aesthetic appeal. They are great for suppressing weed growth and controlling soil erosion. Perfect for creating eye catching dry beds, walkways, and even driveways.

Pea Gravel

Pea gravel is white, pea size rocks. They have become very popular for creating patios, driveways, walkways, and outdoor seating areas. They are easy on the feet and hold up to foot traffic and furniture.

These attractive stones are used between stepping stones and accents around your home. Gravel typically needs some type of edging material, such as bricks or pavers. This ensures it will stay in place and not travel outside the boundaries
