This can be extremely challenging, and sometimes one may just not have the time to sit and think about all of their color options.
When choosing a design, it’s always important to consider the light your plants and landscaping will receive. Too much light and you may burn your shade plants; too little and they will wither and die. It goes the same for your landscaping with choosing rock or mulch. Color mulches don’t do good in shade. The mulch holds in moisture and will over time cause it to mold. Too light of rock will always look bad over time as it will end up with a green limey substance on it and end up needing replacing before some of your darker rocks will.
The choice is still yours to make. We will just provide our personal experiences and try and provide the best solution for your landscape needs.
