Spruce bark

The affordable bark mulch alternative

Spruce bark mulch is an affordable and decorative alternative to pine bark. It adorns flower beds and revives soil structure.

In addition to pure spruce bark mulch, we can offer a mixture of spruce and pine bark.



Rich in fibre
Spruce bark has a fibrous structure. It is also darker and thinner than stone pine bark.

PH value
The pH value of the spruce bark ranges from slightly acid to neutral.

Nutrients freely available
This value is beneficial to the majority of plants because the necessary nutrients are freely available in the soil.


Good against weeds
The rough surface of the spruce bark inhibits the germination of seed-propagated weeds. These weeds are not able to find a nutrient basis, so the visual quality of the planting on the mulched surface is enhanced.

Humus for soil life
Spruce bark decomposes significantly faster than pine bark due to its fibrous texture. The resulting humus has a positive effect on soil life.

Higher oxygen content
The increasing activity of soil organisms leads to a better flow of air through the earth with the plant roots benefiting from the increased oxygen content.


Throughout the year
Spruce bark can be used all year round as a cover for flower beds, woody plants or shrubs, as well as for organic weed control.  A covering of 8-10 cm offers ideal protection against weeds.

For all soils
Bark mulch is suitable for all types of soil. However, it is essential to remove all weeds from the ground before application. Spruce bark is also frequently used as surface protection over large areas in roadside planting. This ensures protection against erosion on the one hand and reduces the frequency for watering plants on the other.

Spruce bark offers a cost-effective alternative to concrete pathways because it dries quickly after a downpour. The cover should be 5-10 cm in depth and well compacted. The formation of puddles is minimized thanks to this elastic covering.

Particle sizes and wood types

Raw to pure
In addition to raw bark for use over wide areas, we also offer our pure spruce bark in particle sizes 00–15 mm, 00–20 mm and 00–40 mm.

Additional screenings are available in a mixture with pine bark, e.g. 00–20 mm, 00–40 mm, 10–40 mm, 00–60 mm and 10–80 mm.
