Four Ways Rubber Mulch Can Improve Your Life This Year
January 13, 2020
It’s a brand new year and resolutions are on their way to being fulfilled - or ignored. Hopefully, it’s the former and not the latter for those reading this post.
As previously mentioned, the start of the year is the best time to consider adding rubber mulch into your lifestyle. To underline its merits, here are four tried-and-tested ways that rubber mulch can actually improve your life.
Peace of mind for your plants (and you!)
There are several things rubber mulch offers that other traditional ground cover will never be able to. One of them is a pest-free, weed-free environment to grow your plants. Water and fertilizer go straight to the roots as they should, and won’t keep the surface moist so fungi and mold growth are discouraged. In short, it’s smart, practical gardening the way it should be!
Worry-free playtime for your kids
There is a reason that even the White House uses rubber mulch for its official playground. It’s trustworthy and meets safety standards, period. Rubber mulch offers critical impact cushioning and adequate fall height protection. Your kids can run around, jump, swing, and generally be allowed to be kids without the worry of getting seriously injured.
Hassle-free yard maintenance
Raking leaves, replacing mulch entirely, weeding, watering, resodding - do you see yourself doing that at the start of the year (and maybe with each changing of the season)? If you don’t want to keep wasting your time on these activities, rubber mulch is the solution. Its durability ensures you won’t have to keep buying and replacing your ground cover year after year, because it will stay put even in wet and windy conditions. A simple raking and hosing down once in a while is enough to keep your yard looking spiffy all year round.
Convenient, an instant enhancement to your home or business
Whether it’s for commercial or residential landscaping projects, rubber mulch offers a practical, cost-effective, and durable alternative to traditional (and expensive) materials. Rubber mulch requires very little maintenance and will keep its color for at least a decade. That means huge savings without worrying about your curb appeal diminishing or fading anytime soon.
