A freshly-ground blend of pine species. This mulch is aromatic, and has a natural reddish-brown colour. It has a finely-shredded uniform texture and knits together very well. Over time, through decomposition and decay, this mulch will age to a black colour and enrich the underlying soil by decreasing the pH (decomposed pine bark is acidic), thereby improving its fertility (more nutrients available for plant uptake), and increasing the organic matter content.
This mulch is frequently specified in construction documents, and recommended by landscape architects. Conditions soil and reduces property maintenance.
