    Mystery of No Longer Made/Available Cedar Wood Chips for the Yard

    Back when my first born was around 2 to 3 yrs old, I bought a bunch of bags of Cedar wood chips for a lawn/yard project. As with any wood chips, as time progresses eventually you need to replenish them (considering my first born is 10 going on 11 now). I cannot find them. Every where I go the employees act baffled at my request. "We got cedar MULCH, or PINE chips" is the best response I get. This includes Lowe's, Home Depot, Southern States, 84 Lumber, you name it.

    I am at a loss as to why these have (apparently) been "done away with." I got a 6x12' section of yard that needs reinforcements so to speak, and I lack the ability to find these things. Anybody here who does landscaping, gardening, projects, etc that would be able to shed light on why they appear no longer made? I like cedar because it (unlike other woods) repels termites, etc (which is why I sure as hell wouldn't want to use pine... being this would physically touch the house at its closest point).

    Good question. I haven't ever tried to purchase them or even asked, but am certainly interested in getting some myself.

    Have you checked the CedarCide store? cedarcidestore.com or gertens.com? Both should carry what you want.

    Heya, Gen3SF --- long time, no see. I can check them out, but I find it unlikely that would work (in that obviously shipping that amount/volume/weight would be prohibitive, dollar-wise).
