Dark Bark Mulch has been allowed to age for several years, thereby darkening to a rich chocolate brown. As it has achieved this color naturally, this mulch will not fade in the sun or over time. Please note that this older mulch has begun to break down, and tends to have a higher bulk density, a finer texture and as such is heavier. For this reason, Dark Bark Mulch is available only in 2 cf bags.
Coast of Maine Fundy Blend Enriching Mulch with Kelp is the ideal top-dressing for roses and perennials. We combine some of our limited supply of very old, humified birch and maple bark with partially humified hemlock bark and a very rich blend of kelp solids and sphagnum moss peat. The result is an almost black humus that is rich in organic matter with all the added benefits of both compost and kelp. Available in 2 cf bag.
Coast of Maine Dark Harbor Blend Enriching Mulch is an exceptionally rich, naturally dark, fine-textured blend of self-composted barks. It is ideal for mulching beds, borders and gardens and for use around shrubs and trees. It also helps retain moisture, will not rob the soil of nitrogen (as raw barks will) and helps insulate the surface soil against excessive cold and heat that can damage plant root systems. Because the barks in Dark Harbor are fully composted, it can be dug into your beds in the fall, providing a rich and immediate source of organic material. It also acts as a long-term soil builder that supports microbial activity and opens up compacted soil. Available in 2 cf bag.
