I use black mulch for the same reason. Everything stands out in it.

Gardens bring beauty to any property; layered with bushes, plants and trees. It is a place to enjoy nature, birds and other animals. A place to wonder down paths with a child-like attitude "what is around the next corner", Visualize plant structure and color. Bird feeders with many types of birds. It is exciting to find gazing balls and other landscape items, like hidden treasures. However with that said, I enjoy the gardens in the evening from within the porch to prevent the mosquitoes from carrying me away.

For a pop of color, a hide away for our feathered friends and a touch of whimsy I'm in love with our hand felted wool birdhouses. Made of sustain-ably harvested naturally water repellent wool. Surface moisture from dew, rain or snow quickly dries in the open air. Wool is also naturally dirt and mold resistant. Because the felting and most of the stitching process is all done by hand with natural material, hand felted products have a relatively soft impact on the environment. - Felted Wool Birdhouse

I personally purchased these birdhouses for my friends at Christmas they loved them! I am on the East Coast and am so ready for spring!
