FD Coco Mulch is a 5 kg(11lbs), compressed mulch block. Manufactured by crushing coconut husks, coco mulch has many benefits over bark mulch. Unlike bark, coco mulch does not float and thus can be used on slopped surfaces. Because of coconuts high lignin content, FD Coco Mulch will outlast bark mulch, giving you up to 3 years of mulching benefits without refreshing. After hydrated with 4 gallons of water, each block expands to about 2 cubic feet of mulching medium. With a "rust" like look, FD Coco Mulch will bring color into your landscape and is perfect for any mulching job. Does not attract insects and is not harmful to pets. WARNING: NOT FOR CONSUMPTION.

We use this mulch only on the surface of soil. It works better than commercial mulches as it retards weed growth, conserves water despite Southern Califonia heat, does not tend to wash or blow away, and gives a beautiful texture (although rust color darkens with time). It slowly breaks down over a couple of years and becomes part of your soil for more tilth. (Tilth is physical condition of the soil for seeding or growing landscape or edible plants.) Once each year, we top off coco coir maintain a 3-4" layer.
BEFORE USING: Turn this dense brick into fluffy mulch. Put the brick into a wheelbarrow, garden cart, or similarly large container. Apply sufficient water over time until your coco brick absorbs no more. This step may take as much as 30 minutes but is necessary and even fun to watch. Any leftovers can be bagged and saved for your next project.
I have been using this brand of coco MULCH for many years. I notice many other vendors offering coco coir as well. Read product descriptions. Be sure to purchase coco MULCH if you want a layer of coconut husk fibers on top of your pot or garden soils. Coconut husk DUST is better for mixing your own potting mix.
It's easy to work with and it looks really nice.
My only regret is that I loved the look of it so much that I committed to doing a lot of my landscaping with it... which required me to buy more than I initially anticipated (or budgeted for).
I'd definitely recommend laying down a weed barrier first though!
Hindsight, I should've chosen something else but it does look nice.
I am mixing this with another type of mulch as a high humidity bedding for my snakes who need it, because it is very mold and fungus resistant while holding humidity well. That's the only reason the dustiness bothers me.
