Bury Hill Hardwood Play Chip is derived from a blend of sustainably sourced, selected mixed British Hardwoods, and is 100% natural. Our 5-35mm Premium Hardwood Play Chip is chipped to a uniform size and offers a great balance between appearance, durability and economy in comparison to alternative play barks, decorative barks and surface coverings.
This material is fully tested for play use to BS EN 1177:2008, making our clean Hardwood Play Chip a great alternative to more expensive play barks whilst also offering an economical alternative to decorative barks. This product meets a wide range of landscaping requirements such as dressing and mulching beds and borders and path coverings, whilst also being ideal for chicken runs and coops due to its durability.
Bury Hill Hardwood Play Chip is light chestnut brown in colour which softens over time. Composed of 100% hardwood chip, it is an extremely durable product and is very easy to install. This clean, chipped product, has minimal fines and drains extremely well, giving the product excellent longevity making it a good choice for use in busy play areas.
Because of its economic cost and increased durability, Bury Hill Hardwood Play Chip is a great alternative to play grade barks, both for play and decorative landscape uses, and has proved to be a popular choice for local authority installations.
