You can use nearly any organic matter as a mulch. The advantage of bark chunks or nuggets is that they will last longer because they will take a longer time to decompose. Shredded bark gives a nice, neat appearance and as it breaks down it provides nutrients to the plant's roots. It's purely a personal choice so choose the mulch material that most appeals to you and the one you think will look the nicest in your landscape.
