Play areas, flower beds and driveways can all benefit from the beautiful, natural appearance of decorative bark chips. Long-lasting and low maintenance, they are an ideal choice if you want to reduce the amount of weeding your garden requires, while boosting soil quality and animal habitats. That’s because decorative bark chippings act as a barrier, keeping in moisture, protecting against frost, and stopping weeds from taking root. They enrich the soil as they slowly break down, and insects thrive within the gaps between the bark chippings and in the damp soil beneath. All this makes garden bark an excellent choice for flower beds and borders. A softer, bouncier option than gravel and stone, decorative garden bark chippings are kind on kids’ knees too. They keep children safe as a playground surface, all while being just as low maintenance as when used in other parts of the garden.
