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.
