Can Rubber Mulch Be Used for Driveways?

Can Rubber Mulch Be Used for Driveways?

December 09, 2019

They have been proven awesome additions for your front yard, backyard, playground, and landscaping projects - but for your driveway? Well, why not? 

A rubber mulch driveway might just be the next best decision you will make for home improvement, as illustrated by these five points below.

You won’t need to bleed money for an expensive renovation

Demolishing your entire driveway spells out a lot of conveniences both financially and physically (as well as mentally - imagine the noise and dust!) for a significant period. With a rubber mulch overlay, you won’t need to go through all that. 

You just need to cover an existing hard surface with it. You can use the extra rubber mulch you have stored somewhere from a previous project, or simply order what you need in accordance with the dimensions of your driveway.

Improved curb appeal

It will look sleek, uncluttered, and will keep its color for at least a decade. 

In stark contrast to faded paint, rubber mulch will not require regular maintenance to make it look as new as the first time it was installed. And your entire home’s facade will look even better because of it!  

It is built to last

With a warranty that cannot be beaten, rubber mulch will last longer than any paving material that is expected to crack, warp, or get eroded over the years. Its durability means you won’t have to worry about replacing your driveway ground cover annually (so you can rest assured about your renovation budget, too).

Can withstand seasonal changes

Pavements crack in the heat, become slippery with snow and rain, and get general wear and tear as the season's change. This poses a danger year after year for the occupants of your home. 

During the changing cycles of freezing, thawing, and overheating, you can trust your rubber mulch driveway to keep itself safe, slip-proof, and staying put no matter the season.  

You won’t have to worry about weed, mold, or fungus growth

Because it doesn’t retain moisture, a rubber mulch driveway won’t have any weeds, molds, or unattractive fungus growth on it. That means no more extra maintenance days and expenses! It will also keep the surface non-slippery, so you won’t have to worry about having accidents even on cold, wet days.
