Pine Bark Nuggets is a premium-grade, natural bark which lasts much longer than other bark products. It can be used as ornamental ground cover for beds and borders, providing a clean visual background that will showcase flowers and foliage when used as a mulch. As well as making gardens look attractive, it can help suppress weeds, and retain soil moisture during dry spells. It is also certified for use in play areas.
Spread Pine Bark Nuggets to a depth of 25mm (1″). 50mm (2″) is required for effective weed suppression. Raking over will help give a more even appearance. Leave a gap of approximately 25mm-50mm (1″-2″) between the bark and base of the plant, to protect delicate plants.
For playgrounds, the depth will depend on the surface on which the bark is to be laid. Spread Pine Bark Nuggets to a depth of 20cm (8″) over a soil surface, 25cm (10″) over a tarmac surface and 30cm (12″) over a concrete surface. Raking over will help give a more even appearance.
