This bark is a beautiful, burnished red that is showy in any flower bed and is by far the most popular choice. This perfect blend of nickel-sized pieces with fine Northwest bark dust creates instant color and texture in the yard. A “big bang for your buck” look. Always a favorite for the gardener who is looking for an organic addition to the soil that packs in nutrients that plants feed on. This is the industry standard and one that allows for protection of plants in the winter and helps hold in moisture around your plants during dry weather.
