Always wear gloves with black mulch

Black Mulch

Not the most exciting post I could ever make but I wanted to share the warning. Over the weekend we had 7 yards of black mulch delivered to our house from Hammond Farms, and without thinking there was a large amount of time I was being very hands-on with it and not wearing gloves …

Needless to say, days later my hands are semi stained black and at this point, it doesn’t look like they will return to normal anytime soon no matter how many times I wash them.

Lesson learned, always use gloves when handling colored mulch as I look like I have been digging in the dirt and its semi embarrassing when out in public. On a side note, the yard turned out really great!
