Fir/Hemlock Bark Mulch is a natural reddish-brown that we make in-house from local BC bark. It helps to suppress weeds and contrasts well with plants, providing a natural look to landscaping. We screen to a 1” minus size that can be used in all types of shrub and planting beds.
Aged Bark Mulch is a dark brown-black mulch that is finely screened to a 3/8” minus size after composting for a dark, rich, soil appearance in landscaped beds. This mulch adds organic matter that enriches garden soil beds. Rake it regularly to maintain the dark look. Best choice for landscape beds that need a little added nutrition.
The product is great, but the service is excellent! SERVICE, in all aspects of the operation, whether it is the sales staff, the fellows who deliver the mulch, or the A/R person. The experience of ordering our mulch has always been pleasant, and we have always been very pleased with the finished look to our garden, with the clean-up, and all with virtually no damage to our plants!
Bark Mulch recommendations:
To aid in weed control, initially apply mulch 3-4” deep
For just cosmetic looks, apply 2″ deep
It is best to apply mulch in spring or fall before heavy weed growth periods.
Leave space around the base of your plants – don’t crowd the plant base with mulch.
Rake mulch 1-2 times per year between applications.
Reapply every other year to maintain proper depth, weed supression and a fresh, clean appearance.
