Rubber Mulch

There is no question that if you are looking for the safest playground surface available today, recycled rubber mulch is the clear winner when it comes to reducing bumps and bruises. Rubber mulch has a fall height rating more than 2X that of wood mulch and more than 3X playground sand. In addition to mulch, we also offer mats, and borders to add yet another layer of safety to the play area.

Not only are you helping to save the environment when you purchase recycled products, you will also save time and money as our products last for years to come with little annual maintenance.

  • Provides a soft surface to help keep children safe on the playground
  • Maintains beauty even after years of exposure to the elements
  • Five times heavier than wood mulches, this rubber mulch will not float, absorb water or erode during heavy rain and flooding
  • Does not attract termites, carpenter ants or other harmful insects


Rubber Mats

Designed to be placed in playgrounds below swings and slides where mulch is kicked out by playful children, these heavy duty mats stay in place, keeping children safe.

Rubber Borders

Allows you to create one-of-a-kind playground designs and helps retain mulch from being kicked outside of the playground area.

A fall onto a shock absorbing surfacing is less likely to cause serious injury in contrast to a fall onto a hard unsafe surface. Head impact injuries from falls onto unsafe surfaces are almost always life threatening. The severity of injury is decreased when using shock absorbing surfaces such as our unitary rubberized safety surfacing, flooring and pavers in the tile/mat/block/paver form. Additionally; walking, playing, running, standing, or simply enjoying our products helps avoid leg fatigue in people of all ages.
