Yes, rubber mulch is safe for use around plants in your landscaping.

GroundSmart Rubber Mulch is a leading producer of rubber mulch for landscaping, and has been used successfully by homeowners and businesses for years. Using rubber mulch in your landscaping is the healthier choice for plants because it: allows for water and nutrients to reach plant roots that other mulches retain, it doesn’t attract pests that can often damage plants, and helps prevent weeds leading to less chemical use for control.
