Bark Mulch is processed bark material from different species of trees, used as a ground covering for multiple applications. It can be used for water retention around plants while giving the landscape an attractive manicured appearance. It may also be used for acidifying soil and weed control, provide mud control, trail surfaces, and as a growing medium.
Bark mulch comes in different sizes and species, tailored for specific applications. Each bark species has its own defining characteristics and are often regionally popular based on local forests varieties. Fir, cedar, cypress, oak, pine and hemlock are just a few varieties available.
Bark Mulch is typically orange/red-brown in color, but may have added coloring, such as red and black, for additional customization.
