How To Utilize Woodchips
Mulching landscape: You can use the woodchips you have for mulching the landscape in your garden. On one hand, it will keep the soil cooler on hot summer days and on the other hand it will help in retaining moisture in it. People spend a lot every year to buy wood pellets for this purpose.
Cook outdoors: While cooking outdoors like BBQ or your regular meals, woodchips can be used as fuel and add a bit of extra flavor to your food. You can use different types like mesquite or applewood in a smoker or grill to give different types of flavors to your food.
Fire starter: You can also use them with some paraffin, while camping or emergency conditions to start a fire. Sawdust or wood residue can help wood logs to catch fire quickly as they burn fast and for a longer time.
Create a path: Another good use of wood chips is to lay them down on the top of your pathways to prevent the growth of weeds on them as well as create a crispy sound when someone walks on them like walking on breadcrumbs. You can also use these chips to cover muddy spots on your pathways.
Bed for the animals: You can provide an alternative space to the outdoor animals to lie down instead of bare ground. It will keep them away from the contact of insects and pests but also keep them warmer. To make it a bit softer for the animals you can use a blanket to cover the chips.
Block weeds: If you want to keep the soil cool in the hottest days of summer or control the growth of weeds in your garden then you can use them as a blocker. They will save a lot of nutrients consumed by the unwanted plants growing in your garden.
Cover playground: If you have a small playing space for your kids in the backyard then you can use them to provide a good cushioning on the ground which can absorb a lot of energy when your kids fall unintentionally as well as reduce the risk of severe injuries.
