What is the best type of mulch to use around shrubs and trees in the southeast region? Currently I use Cypress and my neighbors all use pine straw. Thanks...

While each mulch has pro's and con's, in the end, they all will do their jobs - suppressing weeds, moderating soil temperatures, slowing water evaporation. Cost and availability are the main considerations. Among those available, go with what you like the looks of best.
