Expert Response

Yes, you may use both coffee grounds and barkdust in your flower beds. Here's an interesting article, "Coffee grounds-will they perk up plants?", from Washington State Extension.http://labs.wsu.edu/linda-chalker-scott/wp-content/uploads/sites/439/2015/03/coffee-grounds.pdf
Barkdust works well to supress weeds and it does give a finished look to the beds.
Happy mulching.
