Colored mulch is made through a multi-step process. Living Earth processes tree trimmings, limbs, logs through a grinder using a large screen. The material is processed a second time through the grinder using a smaller 2-inch screen, making smaller wood fibers, or fresh ground mulch. This mulch enters a coloring system, where ultra-concentrated, environmentally safe colorant is mixed with water and applied to the wood fibers. The colored mulch feeds out on a belt and is positioned into bulk piles. Some of the product is transported to our bagging, where it is packaged and sold in 2 cu. ft. bags.
