I am putting in a new herb bed of mature plants. Southern exposure. What kind of mulch is best? rubber, wood, what kind of wood? I am putting down landscape cloth to prevent weeds under the mulch. Thank you.

There is no THE best kind of mulch. We would not be inclined to use rubber mulch in a herb garden. Otherwise, whichever type appeals to you the most could be used. vw
