Since rubber mulch hit the market over a decade ago, it has become an
increasingly popular choice for residential and commercial landscaping
based on appearance, durability, and low maintenance factors.

Landscape™ Rubber Mulch is the innovative way to beautify flowerbeds, shrubs or just about any
outdoor area that would typically be covered with conventional wood mulch. Rubber mulch is not only attractive and virtually maintenance-free, it actually benefits the soil and plant roots by forming an insulating cover over the soil allowing water and nutrients in while preventing weed growth. Landscape™ Rubber Mulch does not breed termites and does not decompose. Landscape™ Rubber Mulch does not need to be replenished, and retains its earth tone beauty and consistency year-round.
How does rubber mulch compare to traditional wood mulch?
Although both rubber and wood mulch come in a variety of colors to cater to different aesthetic
requirements, rubber mulch retains its vibrancy much longer than wood.
Wood mulch products often use dyed woods, old pallets that have been ground up, and other woods that were originally used in industrial applications. These woods chips can contain trace amounts of by products and toxins associated with various industries. Landscape™ Rubber Mulch is composed of re-purposed passenger tires. Manufacturing Landscape™ involves thoroughly cleaning the tires before grinding them into tiny pellets and using various processes to remove any contaminates. Landscape™ Rubber Mulch has been thoroughly tested for lead content and soluble heavy metals.
Unlike traditional wood mulch, rubber does not attract termites and other insects because it is not comprised of the organic materials that insects gravitate to.
Because of its composition, Landscape™ Rubber Mulch protects soil from the hot rays of the sun in the summer, and from the frigid cold frost in the winter. Healthy rain and water will bypass the water-resistant rubber providing an excellent medium to allow water and fertilizer to pass through to the soil, while prohibiting the germination of weeds.
Properly installed, rubber mulch requires little maintenance compared to wood mulch and can last for 10-20 years. Wood mulch is generally replaced each year.
Wood mulch is far more flammable compared to rubber mulch.
Although rubber mulch has a higher up front cost, it is actually
the lower cost option over the long term. Since rubber doesn't
deteriorate, it lasts much longer than wood mulch and eliminates
the need for yearly mulching. The coverage rate for rubber mulch
is 1.5 inches thick, while wood mulch is typically recommended
to be installed to a minimum thickness of 3 inches.
