Westland's Decorative Mini Bark – 50L

Made from sustainable conifer plantations grown for the timber industry, Westland’s Decorative Mini Bark are the full package. Our container growth shrubs and trees are valuable features in our garden design. Adding a decorative bark that both looks good and helps keep your soil healthy… it’s a must have!  

These mini bark chips will help to retain moisture in the soil and protect the top layer of your soil from freezing over on frosty days. They reduce the need the weed around your shrubs and create a great decorative background to your garden features.

Directions for beds and borders:

Prepare your area by removing any weeds and debris. For best results in beds and borders, lay a fabric membrane under the bark. Next, cut an X-shaped hole in the membrane and place your shrubs into the planting hole under the membrane.

Spread the bark chips under the plant canopy to hide the membrane. Final step, evenly spread a layer of bark around 2.5cm to 5cm deep over the bed or border.

Directions for pots and containers:

Leave a space at the top of each of your containers that is around 5cm to 7cm deep. Next, spread a layer of mini bark over the top of your compost or soil. This layer should be around 3cm to 5cm deep.

To maintain the effectiveness of your mini bark, check the compost underneath is fresh at least once a year and remove weeds as they appear (which will be a rare occurence!) Top up the bark using the steps above after replenishing your soil.
