That reminds me of this. http://www.stomptokyo.com/badmovierepor ... olith.html

The guy I used to buy coal from in Middletown used to have two monsters out in front of his place. He would take one to the Durham Fair and people would try to guess it's weight, within 10 # and you would win a ton of coal. He never did pay out IIRC. One was in the 3200# range, he told me when he retired. That is a BIG chunk of coal!

Your comment about our Anthracite product is not true. Anthracite used in landscaping represents the smallest fraction of our customer base.

Thinking about tackling this again this summer. My question is, is this coal black? From all thepics I see, it seems to look more grey in color. I want a deep black look... Thanks in advance.

Just rake up the old mulch and other lawn waste and even out and dye it. Should give it longer life.


Have you used this Mulchdye?
