Most commonly used as an economic ground cover for landscaping large areas. This mulch is great at retaining water, thus providing a water supply to your plants in the driest summers. Apply at a minimum thickness of 100mm deep to create the ultimate weed suppressant. Derived from 100% New Zealand pine tree harvesting.
Size: Screened at 0-50mm, will contain stringy and woody (white wood) otherwise known as cambium parts of the bark.
Time before re-mulching: Approximately two years (minimum)
Similar to all other mulches, bark has impeccable water retention and weed suppressant qualities. Used more as a “natural” aesthetic tool than a decorative one. Being made from a byproduct of screening other grades, this product naturally blends into the garden and provides an almost effortlessly perfect look to the garden.
Perfect for hilly or sloping terrains as the “stringy” nature of the cambium in this product helps to knit and seemingly hold the fibres together. A combination of living and dead cells; Cambium refers to the inner and outer layers of the tree wood it covered. It is the second layer in depth from the outside of the tree. Particularly in rain, it is perfect for rolling embankments as the rain passes right through and gets stored within the product to be used by the plants in drier months.
- Naturally maintains soil moisture in the summer and retains heat in the winter
- Helps in the suppression of weeds (if laid at a minimum depth of 100mm)
- Naturally binds and holds on sloping surfaces; even against most rains and winds.
- Can be used with or without a weedmat. When coupled with a weedmat, the suppression of weeds is increased.
Perfect around the base of any plants or trees within your yard, it is often seen in show homes and in commercial or public landscapes. This is mainly because it can absorb and take on the nutrients of any other garden media that falls into it; leaves, animal manure, twigs, etc. and propagates it to become part of the protective layer. Through natural elemental cyclisation and the movement of insects, such as worms, the mulch is naturally turned over and the soil is increasingly receiving the benefits of this additional organic matter. Additionally, as it appears to be entirely natural when placed in the yard, this process typically goes completely unnoticed.
Mulch operates as a natural insulation system for the earth. Compare it to the insulation you might find in your home; it keeps the warmth in in the winter, and keeps the place cool in the summer. Bark Mulch operates in a similar way; it keeps the roots warm and protected from frost-heaving (a process where the roots expand in the changing temperatures of hot and cold until they are literally forced out of the ground) in the winter, and provides a steady supply of water in the summer. As a general rule, you can use it to compliment and improve any garden as it helps improve the virility of the soil and helps not only keep the plants alive but healthy also.
FREE SHIPPING THROUGHOUT OUR METROPOLITAN AUCKLAND DELIVERY ZONES*
Delivery is available free throughout our metropolitan Auckland delivery zones.
- Within Auckland, this typically means South to Pukekohe, North to Albany, West to Titirangi and East to Bucklands Beach. If you’re unsure, upon entering our website the address popup will advise you if there are any additional costs to your nominated address.
- DELIVERY TERMS & CONDITIONS: Our standard free deliveries are made by tail lift trucks for bulk bag orders. This is a “kerbside” delivery. Whilst every effort will be made to place the product where you requested ultimately it is the driver's decision on where he can place the product safely without damage to property, truck or himself. The driver's discretion and decision on product placement is final.
“Kerbside” delivery means a flat concrete or asphalt area that is suitable for a pallet jack to operate. Please, no broken concrete, gravel or grassed areas.
If you have rough terrain or require bags placed in a very specific spot you can upgrade your delivery to a mobile forklift or crane truck. Extra charges apply for these services.
The standard tail lift trucks are typically a 6 wheeler or 4 wheeler truck with a tail lift platform at the rear of the truck which our product in manoeuvred and lowered, the type of truck is typical of what you would see with most furniture removal or house removal companies in order to get some sort of comparison on the truck that will be making the delivery.
The bag and pallet are included in the purchase price, however if you would like these removed from your property once the bags are emptied please order a pallet or bag collection and when we have a truck in the area next we will collect these for you, again these must be “kerbside” and in a central accessible area for the driver to collect easily - close to the truck.
Please consider the following conditions before ordering:
Whilst we endeavour to make deliveries on time, causes which delay delivery
may arise. Therefore, Cubag will take no liability (in damages or otherwise) for
the inability to deliver on the desired date.
In cases where a product is out of stock, Cubag has the unconditional right to
delay or cancel the order.
The delivery location must be free of any hazardous obstacles and have suitable
roads in which the truck can drive on.
As pallet jacks are used to manoeuvre the products, the delivery location must be
on level ground. This means goods cannot and will not be delivered on uneven
surfaces (e.g. slopes, grass, gravel).
The customer must understand that the position in which products are delivered
to is at the discretion of the truck driver. therefore, in cases where the customer requests product placement anywhere where the driver deems unsafe, Cubag will not be liable for any consequent damage to the customers property. Furthermore, if damage to the delivery vehicle is sustained upon delivery to an unsuitable location, the customer is liable for any damages. The drivers safety and that of your property is paramount, hence the drivers decision on where to place the product is final.
At the time of delivery, the customer or a representative of the customer, must be present. This is so the appropriate delivery spot can be established, and paperwork can be signed. Products on standard free delivery via tail lift CANNOT be lifted over any elevated structure (e.g. hedges, fences, walls). Special delivery will need to be organised.
Finally, if attempts to deliver products fail due to the lack of delivery information
or customer negligence to these conditions, the customer will be liable for any redelivery charges or extra fees incurred as a result of an incomplete delivery. If an order is subsequently cancelled, failed delivery charges will be deducted from your refund. Typically the greater of $99.00 or $40.00 per bag ordered.
Out Of Area: Typically an extra price per bag will need to be paid please enquire as prices vary dependant on the delivery location.
Hiab Or Crane Lift Truck: A hiab or crane type truck can be arranged typically this is charged by the hour. Pricing is by enquiry only. A crane truck can access areas the normal tail lift or even mobile forklift cannot. I.e. Up onto multilevel apartments or building sites or down embankments or slopes. Detailed instructions will be requested by us.
Mobile Forklift: Extra charges apply per bag.
Timed Delivery: Delivery required at a certain time of the day. This can be arranged, free delivery will not apply and truck hire by the hour will be charged for the service. Pricing given on an enquiry basis.
- Handy Bags (carry-able bags): a minimum order quantity of 10 applies. Quantities of up to 10 bags can be hand lifted and delivered (unless requested otherwise) and any order quantities of 10 or more are supplied on a recyclable pallet. We will then collect the pallets upon completion of your job so that we can re-use and recycle them.
