Can compost be used as mulch?
I really hate the red mulch that is everywhere in the beds at our new house. Our town provides free compost and I was just wondering if I could dress everything in compost and get rid of the red woody mulch? Sorry if this is an incredibly dumb question but I just don't know the answer. I did look online, but I tend not to believe everything I read so any first hand experience would be much appreciated.
Thanks as always,
