IIf you are looking for the ultimate in realistic landscaping rubber mulch, then our premium-grade shredded mulch is the perfect material for you. Shredded rubber mulch is processed a bit differently than traditional rubber mulch. We use the same wire extraction process to remove 99.99% of all metal, but the tire is then pulled apart in a less consistent fashion. This process produces flat and flake-like shapes ranging in size between 0.5 inch and 1.5 inches, with slightly “frayed” or jagged edges. The material is then treated and colored with a premium non-toxic coloring material to provide a natural and authentic color for up to 12 years.
The final result is a product that more closely resembles the look and feel of traditional wood mulch. Shredded mulch creates a softer surface, more comfortable to walk and play in. Shredded rubber mulch also packs less densely, allowing landscapers to use approximately 20% less material to cover the same surface area.
When used in landscaping applications, we recommend a layer of two to three inches in depth. If you’d like to use shredded mulch in a playground or training application, we recommend a depth of five to six inches. Some state laws require a minimum playground material of six inches in public applications, so be sure to check your local laws before ordering for a public playground. If you’re unsure, give us a call and we’re happy to help research.
