Red Mulch like our Black Mulch is ground from fresh wood. It is then dyed to give it a brilliant red color. You don’t need to worry about the dye in the mulch staining your walks, porches, or siding. Once you are finished mulching, you can go around with a broom and sweep the mulch off. And since the Red Mulch is made of ground up wood it will break down more slowly like the Black Mulch. You can read more about the pros and cons of that in the black mulch section.
