These are typical, frequently asked questions (FAQ) that I normally field during
the spring and summer (very seldom in the winter) -- along with a brief summary
of typical answers. Answers are meant to be (hopefully) informative, not very
technical, and are not meant to offer concrete solutions. The questions are
generally in the order that they are asked…
About Artillery Fungus
Black Spots ... on siding, vehicles
It's on the porch, my windows, but it is worse on the siding. It goes all the way up to my second-story windows, and is even under my soffitt and on my gutters. What do you think it is?
In the Mulch
I want to stay organic, and, like, use, like some sort of wood/bark mulch. Yet I can’t stand the artillery fungus. It’s driving me bonkers. What should I do?? I’m at my wit’s end.
Is the contractor that applied the mulch responsible? Is the person who made the mulch responsible? Is the store that sold me the mulch responsible?
