You enjoy the fragrances of outdoors as much as the natural beauty. When you mulch your landscaping, you’d like not only a light color but perhaps also a smell that is pleasant rather than sharp.
Our cedar mulch at Forest Commodities is a light-colored finely ground mulch with a delightful aroma. As a finely ground mulch, it holds water effectively and is an excellent choice to help with erosion control on slopes.

Cedar Mulch Description
Benefits of Cedar Mulch
In addition to the aromatic aspect of this mulch, it will resist decay and help control new weed growth. It breaks down at a moderate rate without stripping plant nutrition. In fact, it provides nutrients to your soil as well as hardwood mulches do.
It also repels insects – just like cedar linings do for chests and closets.
Cedar mulch is a premium mulch and more expensive than some, but often lasts longer. You may get two years from your cedar mulch as compared to the usual one year expectancy of other types.
* What is a cubic yard?
A cubic yard measures 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. A cubic yard of mulch will cover a 10 ft. x 10 ft. area, 3 in. deep. (3 in. is the recommended depth for spreading mulch.) So a good rule of thumb is to calculate the square footage of the area to be covered with mulch and divide by 100. For example, imagine you have a front porch with a flower bed on each side. Each side measures 15 ft. x 10 ft. (150 sq. ft.). The total area to be covered is 150 + 150 = 300 sq. ft. To calculate the number of yards of mulch required, divide that by 100. So you need 3 yards of mulch.
