What you need to know about Rubber Mulch Benefits & Uses

Mulching Uses & Applications

Mulch is a ground cover material that is commonly spread as a top layer over soil. It is one of the most popular ground cover options when it comes to landscaping. While most people use mulch to beautify their outdoor space, what most people aren’t aware of is its many other benefits!

Mulch provides a top layer that helps protect and grow plants, provides a cushioned fall surface on playgrounds, and provides a durable surface for training courses.

With all of the different applications, how do you know which mulch is the best option for you? Recycled rubber mulch has been gaining in popularity over the years and for great reason. Let’s take a closer look into why rubber mulch stands out from other mulch materials.

What are the Benefits of Using Rubber Mulch?

  • Rubber mulch helps reduce the need for harsh insect control chemicals in and around the landscape. Further reducing the negative impacts pesticides can have on plant material and the environment.

  • Unlike wood mulch, rubber mulch doesn’t attract termites, carpenter ants or other harmful insects.

  • Recycled rubber mulch supports plant health by allowing water and nutrients to pass directly into the soil versus getting absorbed and trapped, like in wood mulch.

  • Rubber mulch creates the ideal plant growing environment by forming an insulating layer over the soil surface. This helps to protect the soil from hot summer and cold winter temperatures.

  • For a product that’s going to be out in the element’s day after day, it needs to withstand the effects of weather. The sun can eat through and dry out most materials. With a 12-year color-lock guarantee, GroundSmart Rubber Mulch will not fade or deteriorate in the sun. Likewise, in the rain and wind, recycled rubber mulch will not get washed away or blown out of place.

  • GroundSmart Rubber Mulch offers five color options that are designed to match the look of newly colored wood mulch and enhance the beauty of any landscape. With a 12-year color lock guarantee, GroundSmart Rubber Mulch won’t fade or deteriorate from outdoor elements of sun and rain. Allowing your outdoor projects to look great year after year.

  • Rubber mulch is comprised of 100% recycled tires. GroundSmart Rubber Mulch keeps over 20MM of used tires out of landfills. Our company is highly dedicated to turning recycled tire rubber into new sustainable products that improve the environment and people’s lives.

  • The durability of rubber mulch also means its low maintenance. The longevity of our rubber mulch means there’s no need to replace it each year. Compared to wood or gravel, it’s a 50% to 75% cost savings over the life of the mulch since you aren’t repurchasing each season.

Rubber Mulch vs. Wood Mulch

Rubber Mulch proves time and time again to be the smart choice for all ground cover or safety surfacing material needs. Rubber mulch provides superior fall height protection when used as a training course or playground safety surfacing material. As a landscape ground cover it provides a cost effective and environmentally friendly ground cover. The aesthetic, performance, financial, and environmental benefits speak for themselves and significantly outweigh wood mulch or engineered wood fiber (EWF) for a ground cover or safety surface.

Rubber Mulch looks great in landscaping & is a safer surface for playgrounds

Rubber Mulch

Long lasting color that maintains beauty year after year

Saves time and money by eliminating annual mulching

Doesn’t attract insects, including termites

Allows water and nutrients to pass directly into soil

Resists floating, blowing away and eroding

Does not rot or decompose

Comes in a variety of colors

Prevents weed growth

Reduces allergy risk by inhibiting growth of mold and fungi

Wood mulch requires annual replacement and can decompose after time

Wood Mulch

Needs to be replaced every year due to decomposition.

Initially cheaper but adds up with the frequent replacement and treatments.

Wood mulch creates a moist environment that attracts plant damaging insects and termites

Treated wood mulch could negatively affect both plant life and its soil due to the absorption of chemicals

Because of its light weight, wood mulch is quick to blow away and easily erodes

Made out of organic material, it is quick to decompose

Comes in a variety of colors

Wood mulch decomposition creates the perfect environment for weeds to grow

Wood mulch decomposition creates the perfect environment mold and fungi to flourish

What are the different types of mulch?

Materials used in mulch can be categorized into two types:

Organic Mulch

Organic mulches are quick to decompose over time because they are made from natural materials. These materials need to be replaced annually that creates a costly and time-consuming cycle. Examples are wood mulch, engineered wood fiber (EWF), pea gravel, sand, and grass.

Synthetic Mulch

Synthetic mulches do not decompose and don’t need to be replaced annually, saving you both time and money in the long run. This type of mulch is typically made out of industrial recycling materials, such as tires or plastics, that help made our world a better place.

Top Uses for Rubber Mulch

Rubber Mulch for Landscaping Ground Cover

Recycled Rubber mulch is more durable, cost-effective, maintenance free, and eco-friendlier than wood, mulch, stone, and other landscape ground cover materials. Rubber mulch creates an insulating layer over the soils surface which protects the soil from hot summer and cold winter temperatures. Allowing your plants to be in great shape for every season. Landscaping rubber mulch supports plant health by allowing water and nutrients to pass directly into the soil unlike wood mulch where water is absorbed before reaching soil. GroundSmart Rubber Mulch helps prevent weed growth because weeds are unable to germinate and grow in this material unlike wood mulch.

Rubber Mulch Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare the ground for rubber mulch?2019-06-04T14:21:00-05:00

The area where rubber mulch will be installed must be graded for proper drainage with a substrate that is compacted to provide a firm, even base.

Installation of a commercial grade geotextile landscape fabric is recommended under rubber mulch. Seam overlap needs to be a minimum of three inches and all seams need to be properly secured to prevent dirt or other substrate material from mixing with the safety surfacing. Additionally the landscape fabric needs to be properly secured at the perimeter and around all installed equipment posts or polls. If stone or other material is used as part of a drainage system then the use of landscape fabric is also recommended in order to ensure that the materials do not mix.

If rubber mulch will be installed above grade, use of a retaining system is highly recommended to reduce migration of rubber mulch outside of the designated area and to help maintain a level, compacted play area.

When installing over hard surfaces such as asphalt or concrete, follow the November 2010 Consumer Product Safety Commission Publication 325 Public Playground Safety Handbook section 2.4.2.3 Installing loose-fill over hard surface. This guideline recommends that immediately over the hard surface there should be a 3-6 inch base layer of loose-fill (e.g., gravel for drainage). The next layer should be a Geotextile cloth. rubber mulch should be installed directly over this layer. Embedded in the rubber mulch should be impact attenuating mats under high traffic areas, such as under swings, at slide exits, and other places where displacement is likely.

Prior to installing rubber mulch the area must be cleared of all grass, wood chips, rocks, stumps, gravel, or any other type of debris.

Related Rubber Mulch Installation Questions

When is the best time to put down rubber mulch?2019-06-21T10:12:49-05:00

It’s a best practice to lay your mulch down when the soil has warmed up from the winter season. We advise laying mulch down during mid to late spring. Mulching too early can slow down the warming process and negatively affect plant life for seasons to come.

Spring is also the best time to check for debris from the winter such as dead plants and weeds. Be sure to clean out this area before laying down a new layer of mulch.

How do I install rubber mulch?2019-06-04T14:21:20-05:00

Install GroundSmart Rubber Mulch at a uniform level throughout the surface area. Any variety of method can be used for spreading the mulch including blowing, shoveling and raking. Care should be taken to not disturb the substrate material and/or landscape fabric if used.

The amount of rubber mulch used per square foot is dependent upon on the required fall height rating of the playground equipment. Rubber mulch is IPEMA certified to provide up to 16’ of critical fall height protection per ASTM F1292-13. To achieve a maximum fall heights when installed in fall zones of a playground, the following depths and ratios must be followed:

Proper compaction can be achieved by using a lawn roller. Once the rubber mulch is raked and leveled into place, the lawn roller can be pulled directly over the surface. It is recommended to roll the roller across the surface in multiple directions. If low or high spots develop while compacting the surface, material can be added into the low areas and/or raked away from the high areas and compacted again.

To reduce maintenance of your rubber mulch in high use areas where critical fall height protection is not required, rubber mats may be used. Mats can be placed under or on top of the rubber mulch.

How do I maintain rubber mulch?2019-06-04T14:21:36-05:00

In order to provide maximum head impact protection and accessibility of the playground or training area, maintenance is required. A level, compacted depth of rubber mulch must be maintained.

Upon discovery of a thin, un-compacted or non-level condition, the surface of the area must be raked and compacted to ensure consistent and proper installed depths.

Periodic replenishment may be required if your rubber mulch has migrated outside of the surface area, cannot be reclaimed and a level compact depth for the required fall height protection cannot be achieved.

How do I clean rubber mulch?2019-04-30T10:05:11-05:00

Leaves and small branches can be blown off the surface with careful use of a leaf blower. The coating does not stain or absorb odors from urine. GroundSmart Rubber Mulch’s color can be freshened with the use of a mild detergent and a power washer on a low setting.

How many inches of rubber mulch is needed for a playground?2019-07-03T15:47:54-05:00

We recommend a 4″ to 6″ compacted layer of GroundSmart Rubber Mulch. A 4″ inch compacted layer is International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) certified to provide up to 10 ft of critical fall height protection, a 5″ compacted layer will provide up to 12 ft and a 6″ compacted layer will provide up to 16 ft of critical fall height protection. When assessing how much rubber mulch you need, be sure to measure from the highest point where someone could jump or fall.

What’s wrong with falling on grass, dirt or sand?2019-04-26T10:50:36-05:00

Falling on grass, dirt and sand is how a lot of us grew up and we’re fine, right? Thanks to the NFL and the automotive industry, today we know a lot more about head impact protection and traumatic brain injuries. The most important recent finding is that every bump to the head – whether big or small – is cumulative. Each one adds up and has an effect on the brain. Brain injuries can be the result of multiple small bumps to the head or one large hit to the head. Having a reliable, all weather safety surface made from GroundSmart™ Rubber Mulch helps reduce the number and severity of impacts to the head that can result in brain injuries.

What are some of the short term and long term symptoms of brain injuries such as concussions?2019-04-26T10:50:36-05:00

Acute symptoms can include unconsciousness, inability to recall the traumatic event, confusion, difficulty learning and remembering new information, trouble speaking coherently, unsteadiness, lack of coordination and problems with vision or hearing.  Long term symptoms include violence, anger, depression and increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

What is the maximum certified fall height protection from GroundSmart Rubber Mulch?2019-04-26T10:50:36-05:00

When installed and maintained to a proper depth for the surrounding equipment, GroundSmart Rubber Mulch softens the impact by gradually slowing the fall and dispersing the energy which greatly reduces the risk for a traumatic brain injury. GroundSmart Rubber Mulch has the unique ability to provide this protection all year, rain or shine in a variety of climates.

Does that mean you/your child won’t be hurt after a fall from up to 16 ft?2019-04-26T10:50:36-05:00

No. A broken nose, brief loss of consciousness and other injuries may still happen but the risk of the most severe type of non-fatal injury – a non-recoverable brain injury – are dramatically reduced.

Does GroundSmart Rubber Mulch prevent broken bones and sprains?2019-04-26T10:50:36-05:00

Currently, there is not an approved or accredited test to evaluate the risk of a broken arm or leg.

What if my child or dog eats rubber mulch?2019-07-03T14:53:05-05:00

We are often asked if rubber mulch is safe for dogs and children if it is accidentally eaten. GroundSmart Rubber Mulch has been tested using the European toy test method EN 71-3 which determines if heavy and toxic metals will leach out of a product when exposed to stomach acid should a person or pet consume a piece. Nothing was determined to leach out of GroundSmart™ Rubber Mulch when exposed to stomach acid.

GroundSmart Rubber Mulch is 99.9% metal free, making it safe for both children and pet to play on. The Environmental Protection Agency has studied rubber mulch and found it to be a safe, non- toxic material, posing no health hazards to pets or people.

Dogs and small children are prone to chew on anything (including other surfacing materials like wood mulch, grass, dirt) so be sure to monitor them if you’re concerned about them chewing on rubber mulch. As with any accidental ingestion, it is always best to monitor them until the non-food object passes. It should pass without incident but a digestive blockage is always a risk, so consult your veterinarian or doctor if you have greater concerns.

How should the ground be prepared before I install rubber mulch in a landscape?2019-04-30T10:06:22-05:00

New or Existing Landscapes:

  • Landscape areas should be graded for proper drainage and comprised of a soil conducive for growing and maintaining healthy plant material.
  • Landscape surface areas must be cleared of all grass, wood chips, rocks, stumps, gravel, or any other type of debris.

Installation of a commercial grade geotextile landscape fabric is recommended under GroundSmart Rubber Mulch. Landscape fabric should be properly secure and all seams should overlap a minimum of three inches

GroundSmart Rubber Mulch should be installed and maintained at a depth of 1.5” to 2” throughout the installed landscape areas.

Will rubber mulch fade or discolor like wood mulch?2019-04-30T10:04:56-05:00

No, GroundSmart Rubber Mulch comes with a 12 year color-lock guarantee. GroundSmart Rubber Mulch looks great 365 days a year, year after year, and it’s more durable, cost-effective, maintenance free and eco-friendly than wood mulch, stone and other common landscape groundcover materials.
