Just curious if any other states use "barkdust". In the NW, landscapers and homeowners almost never use traditional "mulch". We use Red Fir or Hemlock "barkdust" instead. In fact, mulch is hard to come by. But barkdust yards are around every corner. I suppose it's because of the huge timber industry here. Barkdust is a natural biproduct that makes a very beautiful flowerbed dressing. But it seems to be unique to the NW. I've noticed people from other states are always perplexed when they see [and smell] the fresh barkdust in all of the flowerbeds around here. Just wondered if any of you guys ever used or even had access to barkdust (not the kind in the bag).
