Area of Basic Shapes

Area of a Square or Rectangle:

Formula: Area = Length x Width
Example:
Length = 20'
Width = 10'
Area = 10 x 20
Area = 200 sq. ft.

Area of a Right Triangle

Formula: Area = 1/2 (base x height)
Example:
Base= 10'
Height = 10"
Area= 1/2 x (10 x 10)
Area = 50 sq. ft.

Area of a Circle:

Formula: Area = π r² (pi x radius squared)
Example:
π= 3.141
r = 10'

Area= 3.141 x 10 x 10
Area = 314.1 sq. ft.

Area of an Irregular Shape

Area

Section the irregular area into basic shapes. Calculate the area of each basic shape and add the areas for each together.
Example:
Rectangle: 50' by 40'
Area = 50 x 40 = 2,000 sq.ft.
Area = 3.14 x 41 x 41 = 5,278 sq.ft.
Triangle A = 20' by 20'
Area = 1/2 x (39 x 5) = 200 sq.ft.
Triangle B = 10' by 39'
Area = 1/2 x (39 x 5) = 97.5 sq.ft.
Total Area = 7,575.5 sq.ft.

• What size are the rubber pieces?

They are about 1/2" - 5/8"

• Does the mulch get hot in hot weather?

Rubber mulch heats regularly in the sun, it does not get too hot or uncomfortable.

• Our son did a huge garden at our local park for his Eagle Scout project. The weeds take over every year. We weed and mulch, but have little success due to being in the middle of a field. We’re wondering if rubber mulch would be a good solution to control weeds and would we need to remove the mulch that is there or just go over top? There was landscape fabric below it, but it seems of little benefit.

Hi. When installing rubber mulch, I would recommend removing all the existing mulch and fabric, and to start fresh.

• 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!
