views on bark chippings

Could anyone advise me as to whether there is any difference in the quality of  wood bark chippings you can buy. I have decided  to use it to turn  a spot under the oak tree into a path, where the rain drips onto the grass, making it extremely muddy every year. Does the bark also need to be replaced often?

Well I am trying to grow a nice thick hedge with them, right near to a mature  oak tree, so anything I can give to them to encourage growth is very welcome!

Improving condition of lawn

Posted: 22/01/2015 at 14:15

I have a lawn which is situated two thirds under the canopy of a Large oak so it doesn't get much sun, and the soil is quite sticky and heavy . I do manage to get a reasonable lawn when we get  a fairly dry spring and summer, but what can i do to it to improve the quality of it without literally digging it up and replacing with a better top soil.
