Wood Chip

WoodChip – a great balance between appearance, durability and economy

Our WoodChip supplies offer a great balance between appearance, durability and economy. Therefore, making it a great option for busy outdoor play areas or local authority installations.

Perfect not only for children’s play areas, but also around the garden for a decorative finish and excellent weed suppression. Customers can use our woodchip at any time of the year. This is because it is a free draining material, made of a chunky, loose, impact absorbing surface (LIAS) produced from UK pine timber. Hence, even in poor weather children can use woodchip play areas.

As such, our fresh, clean woodchip is ideal for play areas, pathways or covering large areas. What is most noteworthy is that its loose texture deters cats and dogs, reducing the chance of animal fouling.

Additionally, it can be used for animal bedding, such as in rabbit hutches and chicken runs.

Woodchip has a long service life with children of all ages, due to its high durability, typically between 4-6 years. While still maintaining an attractive, high-grade appearance. It is suitable for use with all types of play equipment, including climbing frames, swings, slides and space nets. Furthermore, it is very easy to install and maintain.

Play Bark (WoodChip)

Another product variation is our Pine Play Nuggets, made from the bark of Pine trees. These are ideal for use in play areas or in the garden around plants, since they provide longer lasting cover.

Again, builders bags of this product hold approximately 700 litres and will cover 7 square metres at 100mm deep.

Garden Mulch

Additionally, a different variation of product is Garden Mulch, which is for use around plants and trees.

Bark Mulch is degraded woodchip with leaf mould. This has been composted down to give a nutrient rich mulch. As a result, making it perfect for use around plants and trees and in the garden.

However, this product is not suitable for play areas or pathways due to the compost/leaf mould.

One builders bag holds approximately 700 litres and will cover 7 square metres at 100mm deep.
