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