Rubber Mulch

Rubber Mulch for Playgrounds and Landscaping

Rubber Mulch is Smarter
Because you do not have to re-apply rubber mulch every year, you can save up to 65% over 5 years compared to traditional wood mulch. You save not only the costs of buying new mulch, but also on the labor of re-applying it on a yearly basis.

Rubber Mulch is Stronger
Unlike wood mulch, rubber mulch doesn’t splinter, is resistant to decomposition, compression, wind and water erosion, bug and rodent infestation, and fading caused by sunlight. Rubber mulch lasts up to 10 times longer and retains its color and vibrancy while not staining clothes or skin – even in the rain.

Rubber Mulch is Safer
A softer surface than traditional wood mulch, impact studies have shown a significant reduction in contusion and head-related injuries, with an IPEMA ASTM F1292-09 Certification for fall heights up to 16 feet. Extensive testing by the EPA and certification by the IPEMA supports rubber mulch as environmentally-friendly and safe for your kids and pets. Rubber Mulch also offers ADA-Qualified wheelchair accessibility.

IPEMA Certified Playground Safety Surface

Playground Safety Surface

As playground safety surfacing, a 6-inch layer of Rubber Mulch will cushion a child’s fall from as high as 16 feet. With more than 200,000 children injured each year as a result of playground falls (as reported by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Council), safety surfacing is the most vital component of playground construction. Our Rubber Mulch has been certified for ASTM-F1292 by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA).
