Uses of Landscaping Bark

If you choose to use bark as a mulch, it is economical and effective, with additional nutrition and moisture conservation. Bark layered over the topsoil reduces weed growth and deters pests.

Bark chips are a natural, untreated material and gradually decompose overtime. This process introduces new nutrients into the soil structure for greater bioactivity and healthier plants.

Mulch is composted for six weeks, sometimes much longer, to remove any trace of green garden material and result in a rich, consistent quality product.

Although mulch performs best applied to soil that has been pre-weeded and is warm and moist, you can use mulch at most points in the spring and autumn gardening seasons, aiming for a five cm thick layer.

Landscaping bark is used as a topper for potting projects, suppressing weeds, moss and liverwort, with disturbance resistance to keep younger plants protected as they grow.

Ornamental bark has many of the same properties as bark mulch, although you can use it in any decorative area of your garden.

Growing bark is a slightly different product and usually comes in fine particle sizes of between three and 18 mm, insulating the soil, vegan friendly, and used in planters, tubs and borders.

Natural bark chippings are an excellent product for most gardening tasks, whether to suppress weeds, improve the visual appearance, or support a healthy plant growing system.
