garden top dressing - Knowledgebase Question

Prescott, Ar
Question by bobbigray

I've been using bark chips on my garden to hide the drip lines and retain moisture but with the high winds in Prescott it blows all over. What else can I use that will stay in place and serve the same purpose?

The larger bark nuggets may not blow around as much as bark chips might, or there are some decorative rocks you can purchase in bulk. Stay away from the volcanic rock because it is lightweight. Instead, choose chipped granite or something similar. Best wishes with your landscape.
