  • James

    I really like this Web page I would recommend it to any one that does landscaping or just for the home owner. Thank you

  • Lavera Helmuth

    We are redoing a child care playground and would like a quote.

    • GroundSmart

      Lavera, thanks for getting in touch with us. If you know the dimensions of the playground, you can enter them above, along with your desired/required depth, to get an order cost estimate. If you end up needing more than 20,000lbs, please let us know via telephone or e-mail and we will be in touch with special rates. For a Child Care Playground, it is very rare that you would require that much, though.

      If you aren’t sure about the depth you’d need, let us know how high your play equipment is off the ground. A 6″ depth of GroundSmart Rubber Mulch is certified for 16′ of fall height protection. If your play equipment isn’t that high, though, you may be able to use a 4″ depth. If you want us to help you figure out the best depth for your playground safety surface, please give us a call at (800) 961-0909.

    is this rubber mulch made from recycled tires? or is it made from something else?
    i am just wondering because of the 12 yr. color guarantee??

    • GroundSmart

      GroundSmart™ Rubber Mulch is made from recycled tires. In fact, GroundSmart™ Rubber Mulch keeps over 20MM used tires out of landfills. We are dedicated to turning recycled tire rubber into sustainable products that improve the environment and people’s lives. Regarding our 12 year Color-Lock Guarantee, GroundSmart™ utilizes the most advanced coating technology available. Our proprietary coating chemically cures to the rubber for superior adhesion, abrasion and wear resistance.

  • Sorel Park

    A most helpful calculator!

  • Name*jen

    Does the mulch dense enough to stay in place when you use a leaf blower? We have two trees that require weekly leaf blowing. The landscaped areas we’d like to use the mulch for are near the trees. It is also a terraced yard. Thanks for your input.

    • GroundSmart

      Yes, our Rubber Mulch nuggets are generally heavy enough to stay in place in natural or artificial winds. A leaf blower is the recommended method for clearing debris out of areas where customers have used our product.
