What is Landscape Bark?
Landscape Bark is a blend of ornamental bark and wood chip and provides an economical alternative. It is a natural product and will enhance the appearance of your garden. Landscaping Bark can also be used as a mulch to inhibit weed development, improve moisture retention and act as insulation for plant roots, reducing plant loss in cold weather. Landscape Bark or Garden Landscaping Mulch is also called Wood Bark Chips, Garden Wood Chips, Hardwood Mulch but effectively it is the same product.
This bark is ideal for landscaping and gardens, containing quality natural pine ornamental bark pieces, sourced from sustainable forests, and a 10–40mm graded woodchip.

How to use Bark Chippings?
Bark chippings are quick and easy to lay by simply raking out over the required area. The area should first be weeded before raking out the garden bark to a minimum depth of 60 – 90 mm. If the area is particularly prone to weed growth, you can lay down a fabric membrane on the bottom of the worked area and then apply bark to a depth of 50 mm.
