The mulches themselves are long lasting, relatively free flowing, easy to handle and lay requiring no specialist tools, require little maintenance, have a good resistance to wind and wind erosion, are peat free, and are made from natural friendly renewable resources. Additionally the bark mulches have been independently tested and conform to BS 4790: 1987 for fire resistance properties.
