Crimson is mostly deep reds with shades of gray and black. It resembles cedar bark chips and can sometimes be called Red Cedar Bark. It comes directly to us from Alabama. It is a great ground cover solution for enhancing the appearance of your landscape. Unlike mulch, this stone maintains its original natural beauty and rarely needs replenishing. Using rock in your landscaping will help minimize weed growth, prevent erosion, and insulate your plants from both hot and cold weather. Never mulch again when you use rock.
