How Colored Mulch is Made

Colored mulch is made through a multi-step, technical process:

  1. Wood is brought to a processing facility where it is passed through grinders, creating smaller wood fibers or bare mulch.
  2. The mulch enters a coloring system, whereby ultra-concentrated, environmentally safe colorant is mixed with water and applied to the wood fibers.
  3. The colorant completely encapsulates the wood, ensuring maximum adherence and UV protection.
  4. The mulch is bagged or transported in bulk to your local landscape professional.
