Our colored mulches are made from recycled chips, including fir and pine wood, which are then colored with a non-toxic dye. Playground Fiber is commonly used in playgrounds and school yards; it is mostly comprised of cedar chips.
We carry both Shredded Redwood Mulch (often known as Gorilla Hair) and Cedar Mulch. Shredded Redwood is ideal for a garden design using native Bay Area plants. Both mulches cling well to sloped areas, to prevent soil runoff. Cedar Mulch also helps with pest control, as the oil found in cedar is a natural insect repellant.
Fir bark acts as a weed barrier, and helps retain moisture for the soil. We carry three sizes of fir bark, the 3/4″ being our most popular.
