Is all mulch created equal?

Mulch is mulch, right? Well, not exactly. While each serves a purpose, there is a significant difference between bark mulch and wood mulch.

Bark Mulch

Made from raw bark, trimmed from logs by mills as a by-product of lumber production.

  • Bark mulch aids in color longevity. Mulch made from bark will maintain its color far longer than wood mulch. Bark shows consistent color all the way through. Aesthetically your plant beds will look fresher, longer.
  • Bark contains lignin, which slowly releases carbon back into the natural environment.
  • Bark mulch increases the level of phosphorus and potassium in the soil. These macronutrients are important for the survival of plants.
  • Bark contains tannins. Tannins are found in large quantities in bark, where they act as a barrier for micro-organisms like bacteria and fungi.

Wood Mulch

Made primarily of wood fiber, brush and stumps from land clearings and disposal companies.

  • Some producers use ground-up pallets, unwanted landscape brush, diseased tree limbs and insect-infested branches. These could potentially spread fatal tree and shrub disease.
  • Wood mulch is often dyed, and it quickly becomes faded as the dye washes out.
  • Wood mulch can starve plants, as it is high in carbon. Mulch your plants with wood, and it steals the plant's food in a quest to become really nice dirt in a few years.

While these mulches may have an attractive price, they can leave you and your plant beds feeling cheated!
