How to Use Decorative Mini Bark
Beds & borders
- Prepare the area by removing all weeds and debris. Spread a layer of bark 2.5cm to 5cm deep evenly over the bed or border.
- For best results lay a perforated plastic or fabric membrane under the bark. Cut an x-shaped hole in the membrane and place shrubs and plants into the planting hole under the membrane. Spread the bark chips back under the plant canopy to hide the membrane.
- Remove any annual weeds as they appear. Maintain a good mulch layer and replenish with fresh bark annually.
- Leave a 5-7cm space at the top of each container. Spread a 3-5cm layer of Westland Decorative Mini Bark over the top of the compost or soil. This will provide a thermal insulation making the pots less likely to dry out.
- Remove annual weeds as they appear. Check the compost underneath is fresh at least once a year and top up the bark.
