How to use Decorative Bark...

Decorative bark is quick and easy to lay by simply raking out over the area required.
For maximum benefit, the area should first be weeded before raking out the bark to a minimum depth of 30 – 50 mm. If the area is particularly susceptible to weed growth, first lay down a fabric membrane, then apply bark to a depth of 30 mm.

When to use Decorative Bark...

This bark can be applied all year round and should last for several seasons, only requiring a top up of fresh bark on the surface to maintain its striking appearance.

Product Guidance

  • Ideally use within 1 year of purchase.
  • As with all gardening activities, please wear gloves and wash hands when finished and before eating or drinking any thing.
  • Store unused products away from potential contamination such as chemicals or weed killers.
  • To avoid danger of suffocation, keep bags away from babies and children.
  • As with all natural materials, photos may vary slightly from the actual product.
  • Product can be applied safely in gardens with animals and children. Some animals may be attracted to manures – manure can be dug in to reduce the attraction although it will not be harmful to them.
  • During storage, organic materials may develop a white mould, this is completely natural and harmless and will soon disappear when agitated.
  • When soil is disturbed and organic matter applied, mushrooms and other types on fungi may temporarily appear. This is great news as the natural soil web is returning to your garden, just hoe them over and they will disappear. They are harmless.
