Scotts Nature Scapes mulch comes in Classic Black, Sierra Red, and Deep Forest Brown. It's a no waste wood, natural forest product, that you can feel good about using. Scotts mulch helps to maintain moisture, prevent weeds, and create a groomed landscape  all year long. I think I would choose the Sierra Red since we live in the Sierra Mountains. What color do you like best?

Scotts recommends a three inch layer of Mulch because it will naturally help prevent weeds by blocking growth and access to sunlight. What homeowner likes weeds, we sure don't, and battle them yearly. It's time to put an end to pulling weeds every year with a thicker layer of mulch. To use simply spread mulch 3 inches deep. Keep mulch several inches from tree trunks and house foundations or other wood structures. Apply mulch around trees, shrubs, flowers or vegetables after seeds have germinated and plants have developed. Don't use mulch before seeds have germinated, around underdeveloped plants, and within several inches of house foundations or other wood surfaces. A 2 cu. ft. bag will cover 12 square feet of bedding area with a 2 inch layer, or an 8 square foot bedding area, with a 3 inch layer, which will give you even more weed protection.
