We carry two sizes of Fir Nuggets: Small Nuggets are screened at 3⁄4 –1″, and Large Nuggets are 1–2”. Our Nuggets have virtually no fines and have a nice dark reddish brown color. Commonly used for walkways and as ground cover. This product works very well in low maintenance or windy areas. Due to the size and density of this product, it’s a very useful erosion control barrier and lasts longer than bark dust products.

Tip: When calculating yardage, add 10% volume for small nuggets and add 20% volume for large nuggets for ideal coverage due to the minimal amount of fines.
