Benefits of Rubber Mulch Playground Covering
Although you have several options for making your backyard playground safer, rubber mulch is a modern alternative to better-known materials that has several benefits over wood chips, rocks, sand, or traditional mulch. This type of mulch is significantly heavier and more durable than other materials, which means that it will typically avoid fading, avoid blowing away during storms, and otherwise hold up against Michigan’s elements for many years. Our 12-year warranty means that many of our customers do not even have to replace their rubber mulch for the duration of the years that they have their backyard playground equipment, as its ability to resist rain, snow, wind, flooding, and other concerns often makes it last much longer than other options.

No matter how much safer rubber mulch can make your children’s play area, it should not be the only addition to high-traffic areas. Mulch tends to not stay under swings or at the end of slides for very long, and your thick, soft layer of mulch can quickly get kicked to the side and leave the hard ground back on the surface. Our 80-pound swing mats were designed to stay in place in these targeted areas, which increases the overall safety of your backyard playground.
Swing Mats were designed to be placed in playgrounds below swings and slides where mulch is kicked out by playful children. These heavy-duty mats stay in place, keeping children safe.
