care of it during the year: Remember that your mulch is a
natural organic product and it will weather some from exposure
to rain and sun. But only the top quarter inch or so will
fade. The mulch just below the surface of the weathered mulch

and you will have a fresh look all over! Or, if you prefer,
turn the top layer into the rest of the mulch and you will
get the same fresh appearance.
