MULCH & CHIPS

Western Red Cedar mulch & chips are organic material, typically shredded bark or wood. Mulch comes from the bark of a cedar tree. Chips come from the wood fiber. Using mulch helps to minimize weed growth, insulates the soil from heat and cold and maintains moisture.

The rich beautiful tones of Western Red Cedar mulch will lighten up any landscape.

 

Why should you choose Western Red Cedar Mulch?

  • Unlike other mulches cedar decomposes slowly taking years to break down so your beds will need to be replenished less often
  • Using Western Red Cedar mulch gives you the wonderful scent of cedar not available with other wood mulches. The delightful aroma also helps to repel bugs
  • As the cedar slowly decomposes it releases nutrients back into the soil. Dyed mulches are most likely ground up pallets which give no nutrients back into the soil.
