Properly applied, bark dust creates a professional looking yard, especially in conjunction with other landscaping elements like trees and river rocks. And unlike grass, after the initial spreading, there is minimal upkeep required to keep up the appearance of bark chips. You might need to sweep it off of a concrete walkway after a heavy storm, but that’s about it! If you’re looking for bark mulch in Clackamas, stop by Allwood Recyclers Inc and we’ll help you get what you need.
How do I know what kind of bark chips to get?
Depending on your project, you might need a specific size of bark chips or a certain color, depending on what you have in mind.
- Fine bark is almost powder. Fine barks such as Dark Fine Fir are good to add nutrients to the soil and to stop harmful weeds from overtaking gardens.
- Medium bark is often used as a way to complement other landscape features. It’s versatile and works well in a variety of different situations.
- Thick bark and large nuggets are good if you want to create a natural walking path and have minimal cleanup. It also helps that it’s hard to get a splinter from them!
