Answer: Chip bark mulch will last longer

Answer: Chip bark mulch will last longer
Explanation: Chip bark mulch will last much longer. We really like Pine Bark Mulch here in Florida if you like a richer texture of mulch and something that will last longer. Chip bark mulch is also larger, so initially you will get more coverage with it and less upfront cost. Replenishing chip bark mulch is less expensive also and easier. Pine bark mulch will turn gray in color just as shredded bark mulch will fade in FL also. It's much less noticeable though with the Pine bark mulch.
