How to use
Using Cambark Chunky Chip Bark is simplicity itself and is easily applied by hand.
As a mulch
It can be applied at any time, although spring and summer are the best times. Soil should be covered to a minimum depth of 50mm (2”).
Beds, Borders, Shrubs and Trees
Apply on a weed free surface to a depth of 5cm (2”). Around trees and shrubs and remove any turf, if necessary, to a depth of 5cm (2”) and a minimum of 45cm (18”) from the base of the tree or shrub. Fill the area with Cambark Chunky Chip Bark to the required depth.
Paths and Lawn Edges
Cut a shallow trench 15cm (6”) wide by 7.5cm (3”) deep along the edges along the paths and lawns. Fill the area with Cambark Chunky Chip Bark.
Temporary walkways can be created with a covering of 2.5-5cm (1”-2”) of Cambark Chunky Chip Bark over lawned areas. More permanent paths can be constructed by removing 5cm (2”) of lawn across the required area and filling with the Chunky Chip bark.
Cambark Chunky Chip Bark is extremely long lasting. The chips’ appearance can be maintained by occasionally raking the surface and topping up as necessary.
This bag contains enough Cambark Chunky Chip Bark to cover approximately 3 square metres (30 square feet) to a depth of 2.5cm (1”).
