Large Pine Bark Nuggets are approximately 4”-5” pieces of pine bark.
Pine bark nuggets are made from the recycled bark of the pine tree. Unlike most other “shredded” mulches, pine bark nuggets break down slowly and remain in the landscape for a long time (the larger, the longer). As such, they are a great choice for high traffic areas or areas that are a challenge to maintain regularly.
