How to Use

For Use on Small Borders

  • Prepare the area by removing all weeds and debris
  • Spread a layer of bark 2-5.5cm deep over the area ensuring that the bark reaches under the plant canopy and covers the root area

To reduce perennial weed problems in small borders

  • For best results, lay a perforated plastic or fabric membrane under the bark to further reduce perennial weed problems
  • Cut an X shaped hole in the membrane and plant shrubs and flowers into planting hole underneath the membrane
  • Spread the bark chips back under the plant canopy to cover the membrane

Aftercare for small borders

  • Remove any annual weeds as they appear.
  • To maintain a good bark layer, replenish the area with fresh bark annually

For use in containers and pots

  • When planting containers and pots, leave a 5-7cm space at top of the container or pot
  • Spread a 3-5cm layer of bark over the top of the compost or soil. This will provide important thermal insulation, reduce water loss and make pots easier to water

Aftercare for containers and pots

  • Remove any annual weeds as they appear
  • Check the compost underneath is fresh and has not formed a crusted salt layer, replace if necessary
  • Top up the bark layer with fresh bark to maintain an insulating layer

Advice

  • Store in a dry frost free place away from weed killers and other garden chemicals
  • Reseal bag after use

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What does Play grade mean?

A. It means Cambark is suitable for play areas when applied to the recommend depth of 15mm-30mm. The play grade means it is impact absorbing to a fall height 2.8m-3.5m. It does not refer to the natural features of wood chips, i.e. size, shape and texture.
