Bark Mulch

 

Bark Mulch is a great asset to any garden.  Here are some examples:

 

Moisture – laying mulch over your garden’s soil helps plants battle dry spells and reduces the need for watering

Insulation – mulch provides protection for the soil during the winter’s cold and summer’s heat

Insectsoils from the wood can act as a natural pesticide

Attractive Garden – visual appeal offered in a variety of sizes, textures and shades

 

Product List

  • Hemlock and Fir Bark Mulch
  • Hemlock and Fir Bark Mulch (No Cedar)
  • Hemlock and Alder Bark Mulch

 

  Good to know:

  • Each product has its own pleasant and distinctive aroma.
  • Hemlock has a reputation of being a 'sliver-free' mulch, making it easy to spread, and safe around children.
  • Cedar is cited as having the ability to deter insects, which dislike the strong cedar aroma. This can assist in keeping pests from your plants. A good choice to spread near house foundations.
  • Mulches are slow to decompose. After spreading an initial layer of about 3 inches in the first year, you'll probably only need a light layer to freshen up the look of your yard the following year.
  • Hemlock is known to contain a high level of nitrogen, an essential plant nutrient, that nourishing your soil as it decomposes.

 Disclaimer: Product colours may vary. Natural bark will appear darker when wet, lighter when dry. All wood products will fade with time, depending on exposure.
