Six inches of rubber mulch results in a critical fall height of 11 feet. At the same 6″ depth, wood mulch has a critical fall height of 7′ and pea gravel has a critical fall height of 5′. Even though residential users are not required to use critical fall heights when determining how much of a substrate to buy, you can easily see how even 3″ of rubber mulch will provide a safer surface than other products at the same depth.
CLEANER THAN OTHER SUBSTRATE CHOICES
- Does not mildew, rot, mild or decompose
- After the rain, any dust that has formed on the rubber mulch will run off the rubber
- Unlike wood mulch and pea gravel that quickly decompose or become slimy, rubber mulch stays relatively clean
- Rubber Mulch is cleaner than wood mulch, so your children do not become as dirty or messy during play
- Rubber Mulch drains and dries quickly (15-30 minutes after rain)
- Does not attract animals or insects like wood mulch
SAFER THAN OTHER SUBSTRATE CHOICES
- Is non-toxic and harmless to the environment
- Will not cause slivers, cuts or bruises like other products
- If thrown, is less likely to cause injury as compared to wood or gravel products
- As with wood mulch or pea gravel, to prevent any risk of choking, We recommend that parents prevent their children from swallowing rubber mulch.
Rubber Mulch looks like natural wood mulch, without all the negative characteristics of wood mulch. Many professional landscapers buy rubber mulch instead of wood mulch. Using rubber mulch not only makes the play area safer, but it also gives it a clean professional look.
EASE OF USE
Rubber mulch is extremely easy to transport and spread. Since rubber mulch is sold in bags, you don’t need a special truck to bring it home like bulk mulch products. To help prevent weeds from growing through the mulch, we recommend that a landscape fabric is used under rubber mulch. Spreading the product doesn’t require any special tools and can be done by one person.
Though rubber mulch may seem more expensive than other substrate choices, it will not compact, decompose or pulverize, so a one-time application will last for years. Wood mulch products decompose yearly, so they need to be replenished 33% to 50% annually. When you compare the cost, labor, and mess of buying mulch yearly, versus buying rubber mulch once, you’ll find rubber mulch is very economical Recycled rubber provides dependable fall protection that exceeds the protection provided by woodchips, sand, and other surfacing alternatives.
