this is from NPR's website from the show "You bet your garden." He always talks about the dangers of wood and bark mulch...
This species is listed on the FL DACS Florida Noxious Weed List.
I guess that is why they chop it up for mulch. I plan to try it soon.
Thank you for the posting.
i'm using rocks right now for my beds. i'm just getting started so
the jury is not in yet.
I'm most concerned about ants and termites that I've heard could be a problem with bark mulch. You see I'm in Sanford. I'm just getting started so I need all the help I can get. Thanks for your input.
I would NEVER use Rubber Mulch for ANYTHING! Not even for a playground. As said before, as the rubber breaks down, all sorts of caustic chemicals leak into our soil and wreak havoc on our planet. You might as well have your town come and dump all their garbage in your yard while you're at it if you are using Rubber Mulch. It's basically the same thing as a landfill. I think that Rubber Mulch should be banned. There is absolutely NOTHING organic about it. You might as well pour your used car oil in your garden and plant your flowers around it.
Sorry about the rant on the Rubber Mulch, but I really do believe that it is a bad idea.
