Limestone, river rock, slate chips, decorative stone, and recycled rubber mulch are popular low maintenance alternatives to traditional colored mulch.  The benefits to using these materials in your landscape is that traditional mulch has to be replaced annually or bi-annually and these materials last for years without having to be replaced.  We recommend installing weed control fabric below these materials to further extend their low maintenance expectations.  Contact us and start saving today.
