Bord na Móna Growise Mini Chip Bark offers a decorative ground cover for beds and borders. It forms a perfect backdrop for flowers and foliage, suppresses weeds and helps retain moisture in the soil during dry weather.
Remove any weeds from the area to be covered.
Spread Bord na Móna Growise Mini Chip Bark by hand and then rake so that coverage is even and to a depth of at least 2.5 cm (1 in) on the surface of the soil.
Minimum depth for effective weed suppression is 5 cm (2 in). When laying chipped bark around plants ensure that the bark is not piled up against the base of the plant.
For a long-lasting effect, leave the soil undisturbed once chipped bark has been applied. Rake over and top up periodically through the year with fresh chipped bark as required. When using chipped bark as a decorative ground cover around plants, a feed with a general fertiliser each spring will help to replace nitrogen in the soil which may be lost as the chipped bark slowly degrades.
