Rubber mulch provides several advantages over plant material based mulches. For landscaping and gardening purposes, rubber mulch insulates soil from heat allowing a 2 or 3 degrees F higher soil temperature difference over wood mulches. Rubber mulch is beneficial for soil moisture as rubber is non-porous and does not absorb water on its way through to the soil.
In June 2010, rubber mulch was tested for playground impact safety and rated for a fall height of 16 feet.The Environmental Protection Agency has endorsed the use of recycled rubber to cushion the surfaces of children’s playgrounds (for more information, visit the EPA website).
The benefits continue to grow. Whether you need rubber mulch for your playground, commercial rubber mulch, or rubber mulch for landscaping… Outdoor Synthetic Surfaces can supply the amount, color, and consistency you desire.
