Wood chips can create a natural, woodsy look for your landscape. They can make a sitting area more inviting and are good for pathways along a garden. Wood chips can also help to prevent compaction from foot traffic. Natural-colored chips make the path or walking area blend in with its surroundings.
The opposite can be the case when a color is chosen that stands out from the natural soil color and vegetation, helping to direct people along the wood chip path and protecting the plantings from being walked on.
