Our composted wood chips are chipped tree trimmings that have had time to break down and have composted for 3 or more months. A perfect choice for shrub beds, natural areas, garden pathways and around trees.

Wood chips will decompose over time becoming a dark, organically-rich, mulch material. This mulch enriches your soil with nutrients and helps to prevent erosion. By simply adding a generous layer of wood chip mulch you’ll be suppressing weeds while giving your plants and trees what they really need.

Advantages of Wood Chips

  • Wood chips are environmentally and economically a good thing!
  • Our chips are not dyed or chemically treated.
  • Do not contain wood recycled from the lumber and paper industries.
  • Bark mulches do NOT have the carbon to nitrogen ratio that creates a good gardening mulch.
  • Wood chips also absorb moisture and tend to break down more slowly than shredded mulches.

How to Apply Wood Chips

Wood chips should be applied at a depth of 4 to 6 inches to achieve optimum benefits. The chips will begin to break down and will settle after a few weeks. Like any organic mulch, they need to be replenished periodically to keep providing weed suppression and water conservation benefits.
