Ornamental 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 50 – 80 mm. If the area is particularly susceptible to weed growth, first lay down a fabric membrane, then apply bark to a depth of 50 mm.

When to use Ornamental 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.
