The great thing about hardwood mulch is that its hues are both natural and neutral. The mulch is able to highlight specific aspects of nature and various landscaping features without ever pulling focus away from these points or stealing the show. This makes it easy to incorporate the mulch into a wide range of different settings.

Not only are these unsightly, but they can also compromise the health and wellbeing of other vegetation. Fortunately, hardwood much can help. The high bark content of this particular type of mulch. The material is actually a very effective weed killer and deterrent as it’s able to stop existing weeds in the soil from germinating when the mulch is at least 3″ this. Even if any weeds do manage to poke through, they can be easily singled out and pulled up.

Rodents like chipmunks love to burrow, and will do so wherever they can.

This will keep your mulch looking beautiful while protecting any vegetation around the bark.
  • Durable and Long Lasting -Due to the fact that hardwood mulch contains more bark than shredded mulch, it’s actually able to last a lot longer than other materials.

Pair this with its interlocking capabilities that prevent it from being blown or spread by wind and you’ve got an excellent mulching solution that will last for approximately 1-2 years.

Hardwood Mulch Uses

Hardwood mulch is frequently picked by home and business owners for applications such as:

  • Decorative – Because hardwood mulch is so gorgeous, many home and business owners use it to spruce up their properties.
  • Gardening – A primary function of hardwood mulch is to help to insulate soil in and around flower beds and gardens. The bark works to prevent moisture from evaporating away from the soil while also helping to regulate temperatures.
  • Tree Circles – Similar to its use in gardening applications, hardwood mulch may be spread around the base of trees in order to help maintain the proper moisture and temperature levels. The bark will also prevent weed growth so that the beauty of the trees is not compromised.
  • Paths and Walkways – Hardwood mulch makes for an attractive surface for residential, commercial and park paths and walkways. The material offers an affordable means to creating a comfortable path for traversing and enjoying the outdoors.
  • Park Surfacing – Mulch is great for park surfaces because it’s both beautiful and shock absorbent, making it safe for jumps or falls. It will also discourage cats and other animals from relieving themselves in play areas.

Proper Hardwood Mulch Installation

To get the most out of your hardwood mulch, it’s important to first prepare the area where the material is to be applied. Although the bark is able to deter weed growth, it will lay flatter and be more effective if weeds and debris are cleared away from the area first. It’s also a good idea to create a border or perimeter surrounding the project area.

This will ensure that once the bark is spread, it will not become displaced and scattered throughout other areas of the property. Once the area is ready, go ahead and fill it in with the hardwood mulch. Shooting for a depth of 2-4″ is best. Spread the bark with a rake to create an even surface and enjoy the benefits.
