Customer Questions & Answers

Do smaller kids (1 to 4 years old) have problems walking on it?

Asked by: Will
Well, they say it is 99.99% metal free, but I got jabbed twice installing it. I now wear gloves when spreading it, and try to be alert to the metal. Not sure I want to put this under my child's merry go round now. I used red cedar, and the color is lovely. One other thing, you can't blow this stuff off with a leaf blower. It's too light, and blows away. We use window screen material during the winter/ early spring to protect from debris. After the spring debris falls, we uncover it and leave it off till fall.

Will it stink in hot weather like old tires?

I Live in Central Florida and at 90+ degrees it gets very hot (even in the shade). Will this smell like old rubber?

Will it stay put if a leaf blower is used to get leaves off?

Asked by: Gardner
not really, it does, but you have to play with the leaves by blowing the air about 6" above the leaves.

0.8 cu. ft. Cedar Red Rubber Mulch is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 427.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mulch! Finally broke down and bought rubber mulch and I'm so glad I did! I am tired of replacing my mulch every year because it disintegrates and decays into the soil. The color is guaranteed to last so that is another big selling point for me. I've already gotten compliments on how good it looks. Here is a picture of the garden bed, partially complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mulch ever Why buy the other mulch? You know, the kind you have to replace every year. How time consuming. When I buy Vigoro rubber mulch, I know that I won't have to replace it for up to 12 years. How convenient. I'll never go back to the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CEDAR RED RUBBER MULCH We love the look and the ease of putting this product out. It does not go as far as described on bag, but we wanted it deep enough to really look good which it does. Great Product and Home Depot service is the best

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Purchase I have used Pine Straw and Wood Mulch in the past but it seemed to fade and not stay nice looking for very long. I also have 2 small dogs and they would end up with the straw and mulch in their tails and that was a pain to deal with too. This Spring I to put in a walking path in my back yard but didn't want to use traditional mulch so I decided to try the rubber mulch and I couldn't be happier! Not only does it look great, but it doesn't get stuck in the dogs tail fur and I have gotten many compliments on it as well. I liked the way it looked so much that I bought a few more bags and used it to put around a couple of the trees in the backyard. It really does look great!

This purchase was to add more mulch to an area that washed out by roof runoff. The color matched what I had placed 2 years ago. This product is made from small chunks of old tires so it does not have the finely shredded look that some rubber products have, which is what I wanted. This product is not as soft as the more shredded product, and I would not recommend it for play areas where children would be falling down or kneeling down alot. For that I would recommend the finely shredded product.

I wanted to get away from yearly wood mulch applications so I've been using this rubber mulch for a few years. Because it is pricey, I increase the areas where it's used a little bit each year. It does fade a little bit after it is first applied, but it seems to remain consistent after it's there for a while. An occasional piece of white tire cord is found in some of the bags, but overall, it meets my expectations. Too bad the Home Depots in my area will no longer be selling it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting, good color I've purchased about 35 bags of this mulch over the past 3 years. Some I've put over landscape fabric, and some I've just dumped right on top of the soil. Color is still good, weed control is pretty good, and it's heavy enough I can use my blower to blow away the dead leaves from my neighbor's trees. I would never go back to chipped bark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product This product doesn't blow away, which was what I needed. I put it around my little pond because regular mulch always blew into the water. This is the only mulch I will ever buy.
