I don't know why anyone would want to use the dyed stuff anyway. Plain old cedar mulch is very pretty
Because it is cheaper? And much easier to find than real cedar mulch? I agree, the dyed stuff is a hideous colour. We have real cedar mulch that never was that awful colour but it is many, many years old and last year we couldn't find it at any garden centres near by. We had to get something else, not dyed though.
