Black Bark Description

Black Bark, often referred to as Black Mulch, is a landscaping material made from shredded wood or bark. With its rich, dark color, it provides a stunning contrast to the greenery and blooming colors in gardens and landscapes. Apart from its aesthetic appeal, Black Bark serves a practical role in moisture retention, weed control, and soil temperature regulation. It slowly decomposes over time, enriching the soil with organic matter. Available year-round, this low-maintenance landscaping material adds a touch of elegance and functionality to both residential and commercial environments. Regular turning over and occasional replenishment can keep it looking fresh and performing well.
