Although some people might want to shy away from it in favor of more organic mulches, Michigan rubber mulch carries with it plenty of advantages that wood mulches do not. It makes for a great insulator when placed over soil in landscaping, and when applied in a thick layer it has a soft, springy quality that makes it a much safer choice for children’s playgrounds. It is also made from recycled tires and other rubber materials, materials that are not biodegradable and would otherwise end up taking up space in landfills. In short, there are some good reasons why rubber mulch is catching on with landscapers throughout the United States and Canada.
Rubber Mulch for Landscaping
We’ve touched briefly on why rubber mulch is so useful in landscaping, but we didn’t explain exactly why your garden or yard would benefit so much from it. First of all, it creates a great insulator for soil, keeping it between two and three degrees warmer than wood mulch. Because rubber is non-porous, rubber mulch also doesn’t absorb water like wood mulch does. This means that all the water goes directly into the soil where it is needed. The rubber in the mulch also prevents the growth of fungi, weeds and other unwanted plants, keeping your garden looking healthy and beautiful.
Useful and Affordable
When you buy bulk rubber mulch from us, you will be receiving our product in 2,000 pound super sacks that are delivered directly to you at an affordable price. Most rubber mulch sold in stores can cost as much as 75 cents per pound and isn’t delivered. Not only can this get incredibly expensive if you need to cover an entire garden or playground, but the logistics of having to transport it can pose quite a problem. Purchasing our bulk packages at a lower price and having them delivered will save you time and money as you complete your project. We can also provide even larger discounts when you purchase even larger truckloads of rubber mulch. Contact our sales representatives to find out which of our packages best suit your needs.
Guaranteed to be Safe
There is often some trepidation when purchasing rubber mulch made from recycled materials. There have been cases of rubber mulch containing minerals and chemicals that can leach into the ground and cause harm to plants. However, you will be happy to note that Michigan rubber mulch is EPA tested, ADA approved, 99.9 percent steel free and non-toxic. It is guaranteed to be safe, and because it won’t degrade it is guaranteed to remain in your garden or playground for as long as you need it.
