Best mulch material?
Planning ahead (or I should say....dreaming ahead) to spring. We moved into our home this past May and we didn't do a whole lot this year. Figured we'd get settled this year and then get started with things next year.
Anyway, we did go around the house with landscape pavers and fill it with cypress mulch. I don't really care for it as a long term mulch. It was cheap and worked for a quick fix, but it loses it's color...gets so pale and sun bleached. Seems like you have to add to it every season.
What is a good mulch that isn't outrageously expensive? What I'd really love it pea gravel or landscape gravel, but I'm not buying that stuff by the bagful! Our local rock quarry doesn't carry it any longer so we can't buy it in bulk.
