Our bark chips have a 5-35 millimetre particle size and are sourced from mixed conifer with a large amount of spruce and pine.

What are bark chippings?
Bark chips are made from, you already guessed it, the bark of a tree. They differ from wood chips in their more decorative function. Bark chippings are best suited for landscaping projects where budget is key, but there is also the need for a decorative product. Yet, bark chips don't just look attractive, they also act as a mulch that suppresses garden weeds, helps to retain soil moisture and during extreme temperatures, it will help to protect plant roots from frost. As the soft bark chips slowely decompose, they re-vitalise the soil structure, permeability, bioactivity, and nutrient availability which are all important for maintaining healthy plants.
