What is Cypress Mulch?
Cypress mulch is made from pond cypress trees and bald cypress trees. Both the bark of the tree and the wood are ground up to make cypress mulch. As cypress mulch decomposes, it adds nutrients to the soil; it does not change the soil’s pH level as it decomposes.
If a light colored, fine textured mulch is what you want, cypress mulch will provide the qualities you are looking for.
