We get terrible winds where we live. We decided to add bark to our front yard about 5 years ago. With our wild winds it blew all over the place and the color faded in only a few months. We found a cool bark that was made of old tires. The tires are painted brown and are fade resistant. Great for the environment and it lasts a long time. We bought a bad each time we won't to lowes until today when we were finally done. The bark is $8 a bag and it took us about 12 bags to complete it. It took us about 6 months to buy it slowly and we love the end product. The best part is we will need a bag here and there to fill in holes but we shouldn't have to replace all of it for 5 years. Bark lasts about 6 months at most.
Have a great saturday!
