A natural reddish-brown mulch, this product is made in house from locally sourced Vancouver Island bark. We screen to a beautiful medium bark size used in all types of shrub and planting beds. Our fir bark effectively reduces weed growth and retains moisture during the summer months. The reddish-brown colour provides a stunning contrast for the beautiful west coast look.
DARK COMPOST BARK MULCH
A composted blend of fir and hemlock with a rich, peat-like texture, great for topping & mulching flower beds or for mixing into gardens. Screened to a 1” minus size, our dark bark has a rich, dark, peat-like appearance in landscape beds. This mulch adds organic matter and contains compost that enriches garden beds and adds nutrients while suppressing weeds and retaining moisture content so that you can water less through the summer months. We recommend raking mulch regularly to maintain the ‘dark’ look. Ultimately, Dark Bark Mulch is the best choice for landscape beds and gardens which need added nutrition and moisture retention.
CEDAR WOODCHIPS MULCH
Excellent for weed control; ideal uses for cedar chips include pathways, playgrounds and around raised garden beds. Because of the natural oils in cedar woodchip mulch is slow to decompose compared to other mulches. Medium to coarse grind, this chip breaks down very slowly and helps to create a soft ground cover in wet or spongy areas. It also works well on slopes due to its coarser nature and is less prone to movement in windy areas.
Cedar chip is the ideal product for children’s playgrounds as it creates a soft, clean, environment which is safe for children to play on. Cedar play chips are a proven, cost-effective, clean option which prevents injuries from falls. The optimal depth for cedar chip on playgrounds is 12 inches.
