Ask a Question
  • What prep is required for applying the rubber mulch? How deep does the mulch have to be?

    Hi! We recommend first laying down a fabric roll, and then spreading out the mulch on top.
    For landscaping we recommend a 2'' depth, and for residential playgrounds a 3'' depth.

  • Will the dye rub off on bare feet or clothes?

    No, Playsafer rubber mulch only uses high quality dye and will not rub off onto hands, feet or clothing.

  • Will this mulch alone control weeds or do you need to put weed barrier fabric down first?

    Hi, we always recommend laying down a fabric roll first.

  • does it smell? how long will it last? Is black too hot to put around plants?

    Hi, rubber mulch has no long lasting smell. It will last for 12 years, and its always safe to put around plants and won't harm them in anny way!
