Fine Grind Native Cedar Mulch is chestnut brown coloration.  Good mulch for bedding and adding contrast to landscaping projects.  Due to the nature of cedar and the oils produced, it is a natural pest repellent and does take longer to break down.  Not recommended for vegetable gardens.

Single Grind Cedar Mulch is a larger sized mulch.  As with the finer cedar, it is a natural pest repellent and is commonly used to keep undergrowth areas under control, in playscapes and as pathways.
