Dark Walnut Double Shredded Mulch Is The Popular Choice For Harrisonburg Landscapes.
Dark Walnut Mulch is easily the most popular choice of mulch among landscapers and professional businesses. Like all mulches sold at Mission Mulch, Dark Walnut mulch begins as logs and limbs ground up using high horsepower machines which splinter the wood into manageable size pieces. Those pieces are then stockpiled and compacted to generate heats in excess of 160 degrees Fahrenheit which aid in killing pathogens such as weeds and termites. After proper aging, the primary grind, or first pass, is run back through the high power grinder to a smaller tolerance. The result is double shredded natural mulch. Double Shredded Natural Mulch is then ready to be colorized.
Long Lasting Color Is Ideal.
The main reason Dark Walnut double shredded Mulch is so popular amongst landscapers and professional business is that the colorant makes the mulch retain its original dark brown color for up to a year as compared to a month. Regardless of how dark natural double shredded hardwood is when purchased, once spread, the sun’s UV rays bleach even the darkest mulches white. Dark Walnut Mulch is specifically colorized so that the original color is stained into the wood and the hard work you took to landscape your home or business looks terrific for months on end.
Environmentally Friendly Mulch Is The Smart Choice.
Our Dark Walnut Mulch is environmentally safe and is just as beneficial to plants and trees as our natural double shredded hardwood mulch. The only difference is the colorant helps the wood keep a dark walnut brown visual appeal for months on end. Mission Mulch uses only the highest grade mulch colorant to ensure a quality, safe product. As with all colorized mulches, it’s important that brown colorized mulch is spread in the landscape setting 24 hours prior to precipitation. That curing time will allow the colorant to adhere properly to the wood and last for up to a year.
