Why should I use Composted Bark Chippings?

Soil Enrichment

Composted bark chippings are good source of organic matter that improves soil structure and fertility.  As it decomposes, it will release valuable nutrients into the soil, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.  These nutrients will then help your plants grow and flower or produce more fruit better.  It is the best way your garden can get back the nutrients that it has lost and needs replenished.

Improves Soil texture

Composted bark chippings can also improve the soil condition.  If you have a garden with poor drainage or soil compaction, composted chippings can help alleviate these issues by improving the soil.  It is somewhat coarse, fibrous that will help loosen compacted soil, allowing for better aeration and water penetration.  We will work to improve what is currently in the garden, also future plantings.

Helps Retain Moisture

Believe it or not, by layering a good dressing of composted chippings over the garden soil, it will act as a natural mulch by reducing water evaporation and help with water retention, this process is ideal for plant life as they will then be able to combat dry spells more effectively. 

Helps with soil temperature

Another great reason for a good layer of composted chippings is that it will help keep the soil temperature a bit more regulated.  Imagine in warm or hot weather, the layer of composted chippings will help shield plant roots from extreme heat and prevent them from drying out.  In cold weather, the layer applied to the soil surface will help protect against frost which can be vital for overwintering plants.

Environmentally Friendly

By using composted chippings you can be sure it is eco-friendly.  It can reduce the need for chemical fertilisers, while contributing to a healthier environment for plant life. More importantly it reduces the carbon footprint associated waste disposal.
