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.

Low maintenance landscaping

Low maintenance planting or landscaping doesn’t have to be dull. Evergreen shrubs look good all year, and many have beautiful flowers too. All they need is an annual trim to keep them in shape. This list of evergreen shrubs is ideal for low maintenance landscaping:

  • Hebe
  • Choisya
  • Holly
  • Yew 
  • Nandina domestica
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Lavender

Of course, you can swap out or combine plants with a trail of bark chips. And for the ultimate in low-maintenance gardening, plant spring bulbs. Once established, they will come back year after year with practically no effort required on your part. Deadheading them will help preserve the plants’ energies for next year’s flowers, but if you don’t manage to get around to do this, they’ll still produce a spectacular display the following spring.  Daffodils, bluebells and crocuses are particularly reliable, flowering year after year.
