Bark fines (aka Double Ground) are medium to medium dark brown particles – about 1/2” and smaller – with a fairly large portion smaller. It is a very popular low-cost mulch that works especially well in beds with many small plants. It is made from virgin wood and bark, which is ground fine, screened and aged to create a fine and uniform texture. It is quite effective in reducing weed growth. The fine texture makes it easy to spread, especially around small plants. It fade characteristics is similar to hardwood shredded mulch.
