Mulch next to the house
What's the best way to handle mulch next to the foundation? It's a brick foundation. Is there a difference between leaf mulch, wood mulch or pine nuggets? (I know the physical difference - does one attract pests more than the other?) I would prefer leaf mulch, as that is what I use in the rest of the yard. I'm in Northern Virginia - the mulch will be used around azaleas and holly bushes.
Thanks for your replies,
