Southern States Rubber Mulch is a company that makes recycled rubber mulch. It is made from recycled rubber tires and is very good for the environment. Those same rubber tires would most likely be sitting in the landfill and giving off poisonous gases if they weren’t being recycled and used for landscaping and playgrounds. It’s really a great product and is superior to other landscaping mulch products. It is beautiful once placed around your plants and trees. It will take the place of bark chips, rocks, and other landscaping materials that are basically used as filler to make your landscaping look very nice. It just sets that plants and flowers off so that they look neat and groomed. This product will make your landscaping look finished and beautiful. You can get ideas from the internet but basically you use it as you would use wood mulch or bark chips. If you drive through any neighborhood and notice their products that they use for landscaping you will notice that any that use the recycled rubber mulch will stand out as they look better. They stand out and they look very professional and give your landscaping a very finished look. Having a product like this is so interesting and fun to use. It is much heavier than wood mulch and you won’t need to go as deep.
You will want all of your neighbors to come over and see your finished work after all of the rubber mulch has been placed in your yard. They will love the look and the fact that it is pretty much maintenance free. Few weeds will grow and the water drainage feature is great. Wood mulch will soak up the water and this can lead to mold problems in the landscaping. However, rubber mulch will always look great and drains very well as rubber doesn’t absorb water. There are so many positives but the main thing is that it will look great year after year.
Another big positive is that it is non-toxic to children and pets and that makes it a great choice for playgrounds. It is also heavier so the kids tend to leave it alone. It can’t leave with them as it doesn’t stick to them like wood mulch and sand do. You will absolutely love recycled playground mulch as it works so well in playgrounds. It doesn’t let water sit on the playground after a rainstorm as the rubber doesn’t hold the water. Instead it drains through and soaks into the ground. This a real plus at school playgrounds as kids are often not able to play on the playground after a rainstorm because of the sitting water on the playground under the equipment. They can also feel a spring-like feel to the mulch as they walk and play on it. If they fall off of the equipment, they will most likely not get hurt as the rubber mulch will cushion their fall. It’s a win-win situation all the way around.
