Shredded Bark is a locally produced saw mill bark and is an econimcal soluiton for your mulching needs.
Natural as it gets, varies in color due to the variety of woods used. Often used in veggie gardens where appearance takes 2nd place to weed control.
Barkfines (AKA DOUBLE GROUND) are medium to medium dark brown particles about 1/2 and smaller with a fairly large portion smaller. It is a very popular low cost mulch which works especially well in beds with many small plants. It is made from virgin wood and bark which is ground fine, screened and aged to create a fine and uniform texture. It is quite effective in reducing weed growth. The fine texture makes it easy to spread, especially around small plants. It fade characteristics is similar to hardwood shredded mulch.
This red mulch is composed of dyed bright red particles which are mostly 1 to 2 long with finer material in between. It is made from either recycled wood such as old pallets or virgin wood.  It tends to hold its color fairly well for a season and will be mostly faded after two seasons. A fresh annual cover keeps it looking bright red. When it is dumped on the drive it may leave a red stain so plan accordingly. 
This rich brown mulch is composed of dyed brown wood particles which are mostly 1 to 2 long with finer material in between. It is made from either recycled wood such as old pallets or virgin wood.  The brown mulch tends to hold its color fairly well for a season and because the brown is closer in color to the untreated mulch it is harder to tell it is faded as compared to the black and red colored mulches. Using brown colored mulch still maintains a natural look but also takes advantage of the long lasting color advantages of using color enhanced mulches.
Our black mulch is composed of dyed black wood particles which are mostly 1 to 2 long with finer material in between. It is made from either recycled wood such as old pallets or virgin wood. This mulch is quickly becoming more popular in this area.  It tends to hold its color pretty well for a season and will be mostly faded after two seasons. Like all colored mulches it can bleed some so plan accordingly when dumped on a cement driveway.

This gold mulch is composed of dyed bright gold particles which are mostly 1 to 2 long with finer material in between. It is made from either recycled wood such as old pallets or virgin wood.  It tends to hold its color fairly well for a season and will be mostly faded after two seasons. A fresh annual cover keeps it looking bright gold. When it is dumped on the drive it may leave a red stain so plan accordingly. 
Cedar mulch is a medium-light brown mixture of cedar bark and cedar chips. The bark part of it is stringy or hairy and a darker brown, the wood portion is a lighter colored chip. The chips are mostly 1 to 2 long and to 1/2 wide. It looks and smells really nice, especially when fresh.

Cedar mulch keeps it color better than hardwood mulch or barkfines partially because it starts out lighter. It is very consistent in size and color since it is all from one tree species.  Cedar wood and cedar bark are naturally resistant to bug infestation. The cedar wood portion of this product is somewhat more resistant to decay than hardwoods. Cedar Shredded Mulch is produced the same way as the hardwood mulch. Much of the cedar delivered to SW Michigan comes from the Upper Peninsula.
