The product looks like freshly dug soil when applied.
Natural wood fibres lock into place, meaning it doesn’t slip down slopes or become messy. Research by Reading University has found it is 75 per cent more effective at weed prevention than bark, and gives 50 per cent more coverage than bark. The product is also designed to be lightweight and easy to carry around and "perfect for any gardener frustrated with messy, weedy borders", says Westland.
The product is available as a 100 litre bag.
