20mm Pine Bark
20mm Pine Bark is a larger version of the Pine Bark and brown in appearance. 20mm Pine is generally used to cover larger open areas or larger garden beds. It’s also known as Tan Bark. It is renowned for its ability not to blow or wash away, but still allows air flow to the soil, as well as being excellent at water retention. It is long lasting, has good capacity to absorb and retain moisture, and is also extremely low maintenance. Installation should be to a depth of 100mm for new applications and typically 50-75mm for “top up” installations.
20mm pine mulch is great to spread under trees and shrubs where leaves and bark fall often as it will blend into the mulch. Pine Bark does not breakdown quickly. Due to its chunky appearance, it generally spreads further making it suitable for larger garden beds. It should be applied to the soil surface and not dug into the soil. It’s important to keep mulches away from the stems of plants to prevent mould or fungal disease in the bark
