Rubber Mulch

Rubber Mulch

Rubber Mulch can be used for many landscape applications and has a lot of benefits making it a great alternative to the standard mulch products. Mulching with rubber is environmentally friendly and works excellent for numerous landscaping jobs including playgrounds and gardens, among other decorative design uses.

Most commercially available shredded or crumb rubber mulch is made from recycled rubber, mainly coming from tires. Rubber mulch is great for use in a playground setting; not only does it have great drainage characteristics of sand while being much softer, it also lasts much longer and holds its vibrant color much longer than wood mulch. And that fact that colored rubber mulch comes in many different colors allows you to match it to all your landscaping needs. Rubber mulch prices are very reasonable and will pay for itself since it does not have to be replaces annually like tradtional mulch solutions.

Other good features is that rubber mulch is not harmful to kids or pets, does not attract termites or bugs as most mulches will, does not decay or smell or mold. Also during rain the rubber mulch will not float away or been blown out by the wind. And it is a great insulator for root systems in the clod winter months. And of course its good for the environment by recycling tires and such products for the mulch. Here's a couple great rubber mulch dealer pages I've found to help get you started. Good luck.
