Keeping your little one safe is number one priority and our playground rubber mulch can help you do just that. It is a low maintenance, highly durable surfacing option that creates a safe environment for your children to play. In addition we also offer rubber mulch border which help contain any loose-fill surfacing. This maximizes its effectiveness, helps keep the play area clean, and clearly differentiates between play and non-play zones.

Here at Direct Rubber Mulch we want to ensure that your child has the best play experience possible. Rubber mulch allows children to explore and develop their skills on a forgiving surface that helps to protect them from serious falls and gives you peace of mind. In fact, rubber mulch has been shown to consistently absorb more shock impact than any other standard surface material. It is recommended as a playground ground surface by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Our rubber mulch is also IPEMA certified to ASTM F1292 for critical fall height protection and ASTM F1951 for ADA accessibility standards.

In addition to its safety properties, there are a number of other key benefits of rubber mulch surfacing:

  • Water runs right through rubber mulch, providing drainage that prevents the accumulation of dust and keeps the playground surface from becoming slippery and hazardous.
  • Rubber mulch doesn’t float and won’t erode in heavy rain.
  • It doesn’t attract wood-destroying insects such as termites and carpenter ants that can be a problem for other surfacing options like wood mulch.
  • Rubber mulch helps to prevent mold and fungi growth, reducing the risk of allergy issues.
  • It fights weed growth, especially when installed with geo-textile fabric.

We offer a wide range of affordable, high-quality, and environmentally-friendly products. Our mulch and rubber curb borders are made from 100% recycled rubber. The recycled tires used for rubber mulch are extensively processed so that the final product is 99.9% wire free. Our rubber mulch is also non-toxic with non-toxic colorant used in the case of our colored mulch options.

In addition to the rubber curb borders mentioned above, we also have plastic timber borders available. They are very commonly used with rubber mulch and feature a ramp that can be used with the system for ADA accessibility, allowing wheelchair users and those with mobility impairments to easily access the play area.

Installation includes the need for sufficient drainage, but once in place our mulch products can support a variety of playground equipment including swing sets, high swing beams, rope climbers and more. We can also offer playground mats and swing mats which help to prevent erosion and divots around high traffic areas.
