I have hardwood bark and pine bark mulch available. Since hardwood bark will use up nitrogen but pine bark will reduce the pH, which is best?

Pine bark does not lower pH the way pine needles do, and both mulches will use up nitrogen during decomposition. So you can make your choice based on appearance or price or convenience.
