colored mulch

paddyb96(z7 ny)April 6, 2003

I have a red Cape Cod home with a nice pvc fence and arbor across the front. My question is ...should I use red , black or brown mulch in the beds. I have a few roses ,grasses, and assorted plants up the driveway and want to mulch there also.any suggestions?

I would go with black because in your climate you would want to heat your soil.
