Recycled wood has long provided an ideal ground covering for gardens, pathways and agricultural land, to suppress weeds.
But as well as being used for mulches, recycled wood is now increasingly used for other land and horticultural products because its qualities mean it is durable and hard-wearing against compaction, while safe for people and animals to use.
Other products include equestrian arena surfaces and horse gallops, play area surfaces in children’s playgrounds, and surfaces for golf pathways.
Local authorities are also increasingly using coloured wood chip to visually enhance public gardens, parks and highway roundabouts and to clearly mark out pathways for people to follow.
Like other products made from recycled wood, landscaping and horticultural surfaces go through a stringent cleaning and production process to ensure they are free of any contaminants and are chipped to the correct size and texture for their purpose.
