Play Bark (20-55mm)

You will need


Our quality play bark is perfect for a range of different uses, from making play parks and nature paths safer, to decorating the garden and preventing weeds. This high quality bark is suitable for use under playground equipment to help reduce the impact of falls. Designed to withstand heavy traffic this high-quality play bark is extremely tough. This play bark is exceptionally versatile and can be used for domestic gardens and public play places. Given the characteristics of the bark, we advise its use for individuals aged 13 and above. It may not be appropriate for play areas designated for younger children - for this purpose we recommend Play Sand or Softwood Play Chip.

We recommend laying these materials to a depth of at least 4" (100mm) for impact absorption purposes.
