Bark Chippings PDF Print E-mail

If there is a job around the garden that most of us hate then it has to be weeding, a never ending task that always seems to end in back ache.


Why go through all this when all you have to do to create the low maintenance garden, is lay weed control fabric and top with a good layer of bark or woodchip mulch.


And don’t forget mulching is not only good for suppressing weeds but it also helps retain moisture levels in the soil around your plants, reducing the need for endless watering during the summer months, especially helpful to those living in areas where hosepipe bans have been introduced.
