There are quite a few colors of mulch available, but brown dyed mulch is often used because its natural appearance helps to create a very organic and neutral palette. There are quite a few benefits of using brown dyed mulch. Read on to discover all of its pros.

Color Endurance

While natural mulch is vibrantly colored, those colors do not last long and do not fade well. After about six months, they start to fade to an unattractive gray. Brown dyed mulch, on the other hand, will keep its color for a year or more.  

Insect Repellent

No one wants an insect infestation. Brown dyed mulch naturally repels insects like termites, crickets, and cockroaches. These bugs don’t like the dye used to give this special mulch its brown color.

Prevent Weeds

Weeds not only ruin the overall look of a landscape, but they can suck vital nutrients out of the soil that should be going to your lovely plants. Brown dyed mulch deters new weeds from sprouting and can even damage existing weeds. The mulch will cover existing weeds, which prevents them from getting sunlight. By blocking their supply of sunlight, you can kill the weeds and prevent them from being able to spread.


Brown dyed mulch is naturally moist. It will also prevent water from being entirely evaporated by the sun before it can help your plants grow. It will help keep your thirsty plants in the moist environment they need to grow.    

The Right Temperature

This type of mulch can help to regulate soil temperatures. This factor is important in our area, where we have both hot summers and cold winters. Mulch will keep plants cool during the warmer months and help to prevent them from freezing during the cold winter.
