Now this is really "Good Stuff."  If you are tired of mulching every year with 
 Rubberific® Rubber Mulch (RM16ET) - Ace Hardwarethe standard cedar chips or  pine bark, etc.  and you want to save time, money and your back, this is for you!  Rubber Mulch is made from recycled rubber such as old tires.  It looks great and comes in many designer colors.  It is also the perfect thing to put under and around play/swing sets.  It may be a little more expensive at first, however in the long run saves you time, energy and money while giving you a great   look.  It runs about $13.50 for a 20 lb. bag or you can have it delivered by the  pallet.  I have seen it in black, brown and red.   Here are some reasons to consider this for your natural areas, around ornamental landscaping and play areas:

  • It doesn't float away when it rains.
  • It is good for the environment as it repurposes old tires and other items.
  • It doesn't fade.
  • It doesn't smell.
  • It doesn't mold.
  • It discourages weeds.
  • It does not attract insects.
  • It is soft and does not settle and become hard like some sands.
  • It gives your landscape a great look coming in many colors.
  • It is readily available at your local home improvement stores.
  • NO SPLINTERS  ;-)  Now that's good stuff!
Give this a try, I think you will be amazed with the look and feel you get from this product and feel good about helping the planet.
