We all know that blowing high quality landscape materials into a well-designed yard is a sure fire method for outdoor property improvements. Not only is barkdust great for improving soil health, erosion control and moisture retention, it is also a very aesthetically pleasing material. A well-landscaped yard can drastically improve a home’s value. Here are some ideas for making the most of the mulch you incorporate into your design.
1. Create a clear path
One of the reasons barkdust is so useful for shaping a yard is its presence generally indicates, “Do not walk here.” This demarcation provides your yard with important structure, making it feel intentionally crafted rather than arbitrarily arranged. However, with boundaries comes the need for an established path. You can use stone or wood steps placed in a line atop the mulch to provide visitors with a clear area for them to walk. Well-planned landscaping of this sort can improve a home’s value as much as 14%.
2. Highlight your trees
Trees are nature’s decor. They fill up your yard and give it effortless personality. With barkdust, you can maximize the attention these majestic arboreal features draw. Simply surround the base of the tree with a layer of bar dust; this is typically done in a circle, but every yard is different and some may welcome other shapes. Whatever design you dream up, Barkdusters can help you achieve your vision. It need not stop at trees — you can use barkdust to surround a gazebo, to border your home, or to highlight any other prominent feature of your property.
3. Use mulch to house lights
Barkdust makes it incredibly easy to install subtle lights in your yard. These lights can serve to dramatically illuminate trees or a garden, or to line a path so as to make it visible at night. Many outdoor lights are solar powered so you can place them in mulch and simply forget about them, without having to worry about batteries or wiring.
