Just be sure that you never put wood mulch where you might want to expand your garden later. It takes years to break down and uses a lot of nitrogen to do so.
I'm not calling anyone a rube or implying that people aren't capable of making decisions for themselves. I also am not saying other companies don't use marketing.
Are you saying that marketing has no affect? because that seems just as specious to me.
