Our Hardwood Play Chips are a mixture of chipped hard woods, tested to BS EN 1177 for impact in children's play areas.

It's also great for paths and walkways or for tidying up borders and the like.  Plus this is also a good choice for you animal lovers as it makes a great base for chicken runs and horse menages - it's even Santa's reindeer approved (Cheshire Oaks reindeer farm thumbs up)!


We can supply you with 3 sizes of bulk bag:

  • Jumbo Bulk Bag which contains approx 1000ltrs (one cubic metre)
  • Standard Bulk Bag contains about 750ltrs (same as most builders merchants)
  • Half Bulk Bag contains approx 500ltrs

Small Handy Bags are approximately 50ltrs and the perfect option if you want a small quantity or if you have access issues and will need to carry through your house or over any walls etc.

Please note that due to the bark being a natural product we are unable to guarantee colour, shape and particle size.

Product Disclaimer


We do not chemically treat our products for weeds. Weeds thrive in warm, wet weather and especially in very fertile soils and composts like our own. Although every care is taken to remove weeds during our screening process we can not guarantee that weed seeds are not present in the soil or compost that you receive. To keep your topsoil organic we suggest pulling up common weeds, when and if they appear, instead of using chemical weed-killers. Or purchase some of our anti-weed prevent membrane and some gravel or mulch, for an easy weed-free garden!

Gravel/Stone Size & Colour

Images are for representation only.  All products that Dandy’s supplies are naturally occurring products and may have slight variations in colour, size and content, individual rocks, stones or cobbles made be broken or misshaped because of this. Sizes of products specified are approximate and can vary.  Naturally occurring products such as slate, natural stone paving or gravel are sourced from quarries and so can often differ in appearance slightly from load to load.

Play bark - very happy with product

Website was easy to use. Play bark delivered on time to correct place. Thanks

Riccardo C. (Kingsbridge)
Excellent delivery

We asked for the delivery to be left in a different location than the house. They called en-route to delivery and took instructions over the phone and left the delivery exactly where we wanted it to be left. Lovely chippings too! Thank you.

CHRISTINE B. (Kirkby Mallory)
