Wood chips are great for a variety of places and functions in general. You can use them as an alternative to grass or even concrete for an outdoor area. They are going to be also an option when it comes to filling gardens. This can be interesting because you can have wood chips alongside trees and plants and actually allow the area to not look unattended without major maintenance needs. If these are things that you are looking to have in your garden then you may want to read along.
What Type of Tree Do These Wood Chips Come From?
They can actually come from a variety of different trees. The thing with the wood chips that we offer is that we actually take the time to pick them out and ensure that you are getting the wood chips that you want. Wood chips that come from specific types of trees can have different colors and textures. What happens when you buy wood chips from your local tree service is that you are going to usually be getting a mixture of wood chips from all of the trees that they have cut down. This makes it tougher for them to provide actual fresh wood chips.
Making Sure That The Wood Is Fresh
This is without a doubt one of the main concerns that we are going to have when we are dealing with this service. We make sure that the wood that we are getting over to your home is in good shape. This wood we like to have treated to ensure that it is going to last for quite some time. The last thing that we are going to want is to have you want to replace the wood in a couple of months because it looks old and rotten!
Replacing Old Wood Chip Beds
There is a lot of information online and in other sources that you could go by that let you know the lifespan that you can expect to obtain from wood chips. Some are going to say around a couple of years some may even have a shorter life span. We tend to believe that it is really a look and feel situation. A lot of times chips are going to flying off in heavy winds so there may be an area that is going to be left less populated if you will. If this happens you may need to put in another layer sooner rather than later. What we recommend is that you keep an eye on the surface and draw your own conclusions.
