Cedar Mulch

Cedar wood mulch and cedar bark mulch are versatile mulch varieties that are ideal for suppressing weeds, neatens the appearance of landscape beds, conserves water and diminishes soil erosion. In choosing which mulch to use, consider how often you want to replenish the mulch, the presence of insects in your garden, your budget, soil quality and environmental conditions such as rainfall levels.

Cedar Mulch Details

Cedar mulch come from the bark of the cedar tree, an evergreen that grows abundantly in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 9. In mulch form, cedar is either shredded or chipped. Shredded cedar mulch creates an airy, light layer over soil. Its fine texture works best with smaller plants such as annuals and perennials. Cedar chip mulch is best used in beds that contain larger plants, such as bushes and trees, due to its heavy, denser nature.
