Cypress Mulch – A Great Option for Landscaping
Cypress mulch is an organic option for landscaping and gardening in yards. Like all organic mulches, cypress helps soil retain its moisture, keeps it cool, but well-insulated if temperatures drop, and helps to prevent weed growth. It also looks great and creates a tidy appearance in yards.
Benefits of Cypress Mulch
Cypress mulch is one of the less expensive mulching options. You can get a great look with a functional mulch without spending a lot of money, even if you have large areas to mulch.
Available in chips or shreds
Cypress mulch comes in both chipped and shredded form. Many homeowners prefer shreds because it stays in place longer and composts faster than chips. It also has more weight to it than other mulches, so it won’t float away even during heavy rains. This helps to increase the value of the mulch, since it needs replacing less frequently.
Provides nutrition to soil
Unlike some mulches, cypress mulch adds nutrients to the soil as it decomposes. Plants benefit from these added nutrients.
Cypress mulch is also neutral, so it does not change the pH level of soil. However, according to Purdue University’s Agriculture Extension, it’s important to keep mulch to less than four feet in depth and aerate it on a regular basis if it is near young or tender vegetation. This cuts down on all mulch’s tendency to become sour.
Helps deter weeds
One of the main reasons you use mulch is to keep weeds at bay – cypress is a great option for this. Many other types of organic mulch do very little to prevent weed growth. As a matter of fact, some economical mulching options like grass clippings can worsen a weed problem or cause one where there was none.
Cypress mulch blocks weed growth and prevents airborne seeds from germinating in the soil. And in addition to deterring weeds, it can also help to deter insects.
Improve the appearance of your landscape, garden
Cypress mulch is considered an attractive option by most homeowners. If you love the natural, “woodsy” look of mulch with a pleasant smell, you’ll love cypress. It starts with a rich brown color and over time weathers to a soft grayish hue.
