Kinbark Products produces two types of bark product, bark mulch and bark chips. The raw materials are sourced from local timber saw mills and the production process includes careful screening and grading.
The purpose of bark mulch is to suppress weeds, conserve moisture and add an earthy dark brown colour to shrubberies. It also protects plants from extreme temperatures.
Carefully composted bark mulch does not deplete nitrogen levels in the soil but actually helps the structure of the soil as it breaks down.
Play grade bark chip is used on playgrounds in parks and private leisure areas. It acts as a buffer under children’s swings and slides, cushioning falls and therefore reducing injuries. It is also used extensively on forest walks and woodlands gardening.
