Rubber mulch has been proven to exceed other playground surfacing when it comes to shock absorption—more than wood chips, sand, or gravel—and it comes in a variety of colors. This red rubber mulch compliments popular primary color play systems and backyard toys. For playgrounds, daycare centers, schools, or your very own backyard, rubber much is the ideal surfacing to use for improved safety and low maintenance. Using rubber mulch not only makes our playgrounds a safer place, it is recycling on a grand scale to make our planet a safer place. Rubber mulch is delivered in individual bags for easier transportation and installation. It dries quickly, reducing mud and moisture retention which attracts insects. Laying down landscape fabric underneath the rubber mulch will prevent mud from mixing in and provide a cleaner surface for children to play on. Rubber mulch will not rot or mold and is odor free. Rubber mulch is a practical and environmentally conscientious solution to playground safety. Usually ships within 2-3 weeks.

Rubber Mulch Brick Red (1 Ton) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought this product some time ago & it has held up like you wouldn't believe. If you saw the mulch in my front yard you would think it was just delivered not years ago. This surely beats redoing beauty bark every year that doesn't look great year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Great! It was purchased to go around the playset we have instead of using sand or wood mulch. It is softer to fall on than wood mulch, no splinters, and its a beautiful color. Only downside is that it settles over time. So get some extra to have on hand.

I notice no mention of using this as garden mulch (around trees, gardens, etc). Would it be practical to use it in this manner? Thanks.

Asked by: ckstaleys
This would work for asthetic reasons, but due to it being made out of rubber, it won't help hold moisture or anything like that.
