Woodchips are also a 100% natural, organic product and an excellent mulch choice if you’re looking for a different aesthetic appeal in your garden. Woodchips resist compaction because they are course in texture and composition and weather to an attractive silvery-gray color. Chips are predominately used around trees and shrubs, garden and walking paths and play ground areas.
To gain maximum benefit from mulching, whether it’s shredded bark or woodchips, a depth of three to four inches should be maintained. Since we sell our mulch/woodchips by the yard at our retail facility, here is an easy formula to figure out how much to buy.
· Figure square footage of garden or mulch area; length x width
· Multiply square footage by the depth inches; 3 or 4
· Divide by 324, then round to the nearest yard
