Bought the convenience bag option back in Feb 21, just applied it around the garden and it was surprisingly still moist in the bags. Nice thick layer on, though turns out I need more to spread over another section. So going to grab a couple more bags to finish the job. Stops weeds, and most probably slugs as the bark is really chunky. Very pleased.

When I think of landscaping I always go to CPA Horticulture. As always, my recent order of Ornamental Bark was of the highest quality. I ordered the bulk bag which was delivered on time and without fuss ( it does stand over 6ft high on the pallet). While righting this review, I was also take the opportunity to recommend their top soil - also of the highest quality

Good sales service and an excellent product, best I have used. Slight hitch with delivery. It was promised for Friday but I had to chase it at the end of the day when it didn't arrive. In fairness it was then delivered at 9.00am on the Saturday morning. Would readily recommend CPA Horticulture and their Contract Ornamental Bark

Apart from the slow communication that the delivery was delayed a day, the bark was just enough to spread all around the garden and it looks and smells lovely. Now just to wait and see if it keeps the weeds down and helps retain moisture. Many thanks for a great product at great value.

Order was received on time, friendly driver went out of his way to get the bark as near to the garden as possible. The difference between this product and the bark you can buy from the big diy places is night and day. Garden looks fantastic would highly recommend the bark to prospective purchasers.

I had a look on various websites for bark that was FSC Approved, CPA website was really user friendly and good price as well as good reviews! Arrival of the bark was quick as I was able to choose the date and was updated and confirmed day before. Delivery was excellent, the gentleman was really lovely and friendly, positioned the pallet on the drive to allow vehicle access for me. I would highly recommend and will be using again thank you!

I have had 120 bags of this mulch so far over the last couple of months. The garden looks all the better for it. It forms a good mat over the soil and it is definitely locking the moisture into the soil during these hot summer days. We are on clay and I hope that as this mulch breaks down it will help to condition the soil and make it easier to work. I am about to order another consignment which I wouldn’t do if I wasn’t 100% pleased with the product. I have ordered the bags of mulch because it’s very convenient and easy to move around. The bags aren’t heavy so I can manage them myself ( I am a lady in my 70s ). The deliveries have arrived as promised and the delivery driver is most helpful.
