Bark nuggets are an ideal addition to any yard and are a timeless product that has been used for years. As they are a naturally sourced product, they operate as a natural mulch through easy heat retention and moisture cover for plants and plant beds.
This product is best if laid on top of weedmat as it can succinctly support the suppression of weeds and the healthy growth of plants. Owing to its size, chunky bark bears greater heat retention than smaller grades and thus can work similar to other mulch media by providing excellent weed suppression properties. Deep brown in colour and chunky in size, making this product an excellent choice in windy and exposed areas.
