Black mulch everywhere!

adrianmonkNovember 19, 2006

Well, I had the landscaping in the front of my house re-done this year. I had a more natural look in the past, large ewes and the like. Anyway, they pulled them all out and also widened the beds, and planted a variety of things that the nursery woman led me to. I have no problem with that, but they put a black mulch down on top of the now large beds, along with black mulch around a tree and a few bushes on the lawn. The front siding is a "sable" brown, and all of the black tends to give it a greyish look when the sun is bright. It all happened before I knew it.

Anyway, I think a brownish color would look better and more natural. Once I get the nerve up to approach them on this, do you think this will be problematic switching mulches. I know it sounds like a stupid question, but I want to be prepared. Thanks for your advice.

I expect that this was not an inexpensive service. I think you are entitled to satisfaction.
