Why should I install bark on my beds & borders?

Installing bark on your borders offers several benefits:
  1. Weed Suppression: Bark acts as a natural weed barrier, preventing weed growth and reducing the need for constant weeding.

  3. Temperature Regulation: It provides insulation to the soil, helping regulate soil temperature by keeping it cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather.
  4. Soil Structure Improvement: Over time, bark decomposes, contributing organic matter to the soil and improving its structure, aeration, and fertility.
  5. Aesthetic Appeal: Bark mulch enhances the visual appeal
