What you need to know about Red Mulch

Everglades red mulch is a rich deep red color that adds vibrancy to any landscape feature while enhancing plant’s health. We take great pride in sourcing our mulch from producers that use recycled wood products such as shipping pallets, crates, and tree trimmings. Red mulch is colored using organic dyes that will not leach harmful chemicals into your soil during decomposition. We do not sell freshly cut and dyed mulch because fresh mulch may still contain pathogens from its source. Everglades stores its mulch products in concrete bays that are in direct sunlight in order to keep the mulch dry and hot to prevent the spread of any disease or fungus to your landscape.

When correctly applied, mulch has a plethora of benefits. In artificial landscape features soil texture is often over looked. A layer of mulch protecting your plants creates a barrier against rainfall with can cause soil to be compacted over time. Compacted soil creates a low oxygen environment that can destroy plant root systems. Additionally, the protective layer of mulch prevents soil and fertilizer runoff. By breaking apart the impact of water mulch also creates an ideal environment for beneficial microflora to stay closer to top soil during heavy rain fall. Watering requirements for your landscape feature is decrease due to mulch stopping a substantial amount of evaporation. In Florida our plants are often vulnerable to frost damage. Mulch has an insulating effect protecting soil from direct exposure to cold wind helping soil retain its temperature preventing root frost damage. Mulch also creates a significant gap between sunlight and soil. This prevents weeds that require soil to germinate from reaching sunlight having a weed controlling effect to your garden. Since our producers use natural recycled wood products our mulch naturally decomposes over time providing your landscape feature with nutrients.
