What is the best mulch to use? 🪴 How to choose a mulch for low maintenance landscaping projects

Wondering what is the best mulch to use? Learn how to choose a mulch for low maintenance landscaping projects.

This is the second in the series of videos addressing the most important aspects of using mulch in landscaping and gardening projects: this is the mulch video I wish I had when I first started gardening. It would have saved me so much time! I hope it helps you.

Learn the upsides and downsides of different materials, like wood chips, bark dust, bark nuggets, arborist chips, landscape fabric, rubber mulch, cedar chips, fir vs. hemlock bark, allelopathic wood chips, and more. I’ll share tips on how to research and consider different material options.

Research has shown some mulch materials to be better than others when it comes to reducing maintenance and preventing weeds. This video is meant to empower the do-it-yourself landscaper with the context and resources needed to make the best mulch choice for their gardens.
