Why Install Recycled Rubber Mulch in Backyard Playground?

Before you install any playground equipment in your backyard, make sure to cover the surface with recycled rubber mulch. This is considered as premium quality mulch that provides the cushioning surface and eliminates the risk of any kind of injury from falls to kids.

Recycled Rubber Mulch is made after recycling loads of old & used rubber material such as van tires, rubber pipes, cycle tubes and waste rubber and the like. These post-consumer materials get shredded and de-vulcanized to acquire high quality fresh rubber mulch. Moreover, all the imperfections and impurities are removed from the material in this recycling process.

Recycled rubber mulch has an edge over other playground mulch. It soaks the water quickly, providing dry and non-slippery surface to the kids for various activities. With its high absorbing tendency, this mulch is an ideal option to cover the surfaces which receive high precipitation. In addition, they have an expected life term of about 20 to 25 years, much longer than any other surface option.

In fact, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States gives a nod to recycled rubber mulch as it prevents the growth of weed or fungi underneath and keeps the environment neat and safe.

After covering the surface, you can choose to buy safe metal playground equipment for your backyard. These are constructed as per the guidelines laid by ASTM and CPSC guidelines and run high on fun factor.
