Pozzolana, designer mulch

Pozzolana pebbles have many tiny holes and cavities that retain water and air

Pozzolana is a mineral mulch extracted from volcanic rock. It is both very long lasting and extremely ornamental.

Its red brown color is also highly appealing because it changes from light to dark depending on rain and sun.
