Vitax Bark Chips will provide an attractive finish to any bed or border all round the garden.
The chips provide an ideal background against which to display your plants and shrubs, but they also act as a very effective mulch, providing excellent weed suppression. The chips also aid water retention in the soil and provide insulation for roots against extremes of temperature.
The bark chips can be used across all beds and borders. First make sure that all weeds and debris are removed from the bed and then simply spread the chips in an even, continuous layer across the open soil right up to the stems of plants. The decorative mulch, will reduce the occurrence of weeds by denying them light.
To increase the efficiency of weed suppression, many gardeners install a perforated black/green plastic or fabric membrane over the soil and then spread the bark chips over this to create the perfect finish.
The combination of the membrane and bark chips provides the ultimate in weed suppression while allowing easy access for water and nutrients to the soil and roots.
Vitax Bark Chips can also be used as a decorative mulch in larger pots, planters and containers. Used in this way, the chips will reduce the occurrence of weeds, help conserve water and provide thermal protection for containerised plants.
Vitax Bark Chips also provide a way to to create attractive, natural pathways anywhere in the garden.
Simply clear the pathway of debris and weeds and firm the ground. For maximum weed suppression cover with plastic or fabric member and then spread with a layer of Vitax Bark Chips. The result is a completely natural pathway that will blend perfectly with surrounding plantings.
