How Colored Mulch is Made
Colored mulch is made through a multi-step, technical process:
- Wood is brought to a processing facility where it is passed through grinders, creating smaller wood fibers or bare mulch.
- The mulch enters a coloring system, whereby ultra-concentrated, environmentally safe colorant is mixed with water and applied to the wood fibers.
- The colorant completely encapsulates the wood, ensuring maximum adherence and UV protection.
- The mulch is bagged or transported in bulk to your local landscape professional.
