Playground Rubber Mulch is virtually maintenance-free. But if you do need to clear debris from the mulch, such as leaves or grass clippings, you would want to use a blower on a low setting. Since our rubber mulch is heavier than grass clipping and leaves, it will stay in place while the debris is blown away.

Installation of our Playground Rubber Mulch is very easy, and below are some easy-to-follow instructions for both playground and landscape installations.

Playground Installation Instructions:
  • First, the area where the rubber mulch will lie should be a location that will not hold water or have a slight grade to allow for proper drainage. In areas where drainage could be an issue; it is recommended to install a drain tile system with a 3" base of pea gravel or rock to allow for proper drainage.
  • Heavy-duty weed fabric should be installed under the Playground Rubber Mulch to separate the mulch from what lies beneath. Depending on the size of the playground, it is recommended to use large rolls of weed fabric, typically 12' wide, to minimize the number of seams.
  • You would want to use landscape stakes to stake down the weed fabric seams and corners. You will need to make sure that the stakes are completely hammered down.
  • A border is recommended to enclose the playground to contain the mulch, and it is recommended to leave a few inches between the top of the border and the top of the mulch.
  • Finally it is recommended to loosely compact the mulch to either 3 or 6 inches to achieve the desired fall height rating.
Landscape Installation Instructions:
  • First, you will want to install the Playground Rubber Mulch at 2" depth.
  • Even though it is not required to install the rubber mulch over a permeable weed fabric, it will increase coverage per bag and decrease the risk of weeds. Also, using a felt type weed fabric will help keep the mulch in place.
  • If you are installing the landscape mulch over existing mulch/soil, then you want to make sure that the ground is compacted and free of any debris or loose material. Our Landscape Rubber Mulch looks its best when not mixed with other material.
  • When installing our rubber mulch in plant beds, it is recommended that the beds have a border to help contain the mulch which can be a raised border (i.e., concrete or brick border) or a dug border or trench around the bed of about 2".
Coverage – How to easily calculate how many bags of mulch you will need.
  • 39 Lb. bag covers 1.5 cu. ft.
  • 2000 Lb. sac covers 75 cu. ft.
Take your square footage and then multiply it by the depth you would like to achieve in feet. Below is a chart of common thicknesses converted to feet.
  • 1" = .083'
  • 2" = .167'
  • 3" = .25'
  • 4" = .33'
  • 5" = .42'
  • 6" = .5'
Example:
  • 20’ x 20’ x .25’ = 100 cu ft.
  • 100 cu ft. / 1.5 cu ft. per 39 Lbs. Bag = 67 bags needed.
So 67 bags would be needed for a 20' x 20' space at a 3” depth.

How much does 100 pounds cover.
Dawn
100 pounds will cover approx 15 sq ft, however, our Playground Rubber Mulch is available for purchase only in pallet quantities. You may either purchase a pallet of 50 bags that weigh 39lbs each or a pallet of 98 bags that weigh 20lbs each. Each pallet will cover 300 sq ft to 3 inches.
How many pounds of mulch is needed to cover a 10’X15’ area?
For a 10' x 15' area, which is 150 sq ft, 1 pallet should work. You can simply use our flooring calculator on the product page to calculate how much flooring you would need for your area.
I have a doggy daycare area I’m just curious about the Palatability of the rubber rocks. Some freaky dog mignt eat it. The question is it manufactured with toxic properties? What is the products life span in the Houston Texas weather?
Guinnette
Our Playground Rubber Mulch is made of the same material that's used to make the soles of shoes. It would be toxic, but will not cause any life-threatening harm since dogs often chew on the soles of shoes without any significant health issues to them. Rubber lasts forever, and so will this product. The color may fade over time.
How many yards are in each bulk?
Las Velas at Hillcroft
Each bulk consists of 50 bags that cover 300 sq ft (or 34 sq yards) to 3 inches in total.
Does it absorb water and get soggy or spongy after a rain?
Leona Lowry
Our Playground Rubber Mulch will not absorb water. In fact, it provides superior drainage.
how much will I need for 46*30 or 52 *60
Penny Turner-Hall
Please use the calculator on the product page for this information.
Is it possible to order 2 colors, 25 bags of each, and still get the bulk pallet price?
Tana Morgan
Unfortunately, the bulk pricing only applies when you purchase a pallet (50 bags) of the same color.
I want to buy 1.5 pallet. Does it come in half pallet? Thanks
Unfortunately not, the mulch only comes in full pallet quantities.
How does this hold up in the snow? I did the calculator and it looks like if you have a 600sq foot area, that I'd need 3 pallets? How deep do you want the base (below the mulch) to be and how do you prep the base? Does the mulch get out and all over the rest of a yard easily or does it stay pretty contained?
Cody
The mulch would do just fine in the snow. For installation instructions, please check the "Installation" tab on the product page. The mulch would stay pretty contained once you've installed it unless the mulch is deliberately moved.
Can you use this indoors
