What's your favorite mulch?
I finally almost cleared out the rocks that were under some roses and now I am putting in compost and peat moss but also need to put in some mulch before long. I was thinking about shredded bark but now I'm wondering if that's the best choice.
I am also going to put some mulch down by some strawberries and herbs and also under some raspberry bushes (there are 7) running along one side of the house. I put in some straw but the wind blows it all over the lawn and it also sprouts grass in places -- so I am looking for other choices.
I also have some flowers in the front that I think need something, right now it's just bare soil.
Any ideas besides rocks (which I hate and there's a pain to get up and get rid of)?
