Replace your cypress or pine mulch with rubber mulch made from recycled tires. This mulch comes in a multitude of colors and it does not float. Before I started using it, I was replacing bags of mulch seasonally.
Since I began using the dark red rubber mulch that looks even better than the red cyress mulch, I usually only have to buy one ot two bags per year to beef up my bed.
It even keeps moisture around the plants during dry periods and prevents termites and to some degree, blocks weeds.
I strongly recommend it!
