To better answer this question to your particular kids, chances are there is a park nearby in which this material was used, take them for a "beta" test.
My concern would be that baby's development includes chewing EVERYTHING.

They use this rubber mulch for playgrounds so I think a 3-4 year old would have no problem.
A one year old may trip but since this mulch is rubber it would be better to fall on than wood mulch.

Answer: 
Kids should have no problem walking on it, as it is actually very 'cushy' to walk on. However, I would not recommend going barefoot on this; because in perhaps 75 bags or so that I have laid down the past two years, I did find a couple of steel 'splinters' which were part of the steel belts that comprise most all modern day tires.

Answer: 
On proper leaf blowing, you start from a distance and walk in closer and closer until getting the desired effect. This rubber nuggets are way heavier than regular mulch, so it tends to stay in place better than most other materials.

Toxic/Not safe for Plants

Asked by
Toronto

June 3, 2015
Hello, I recently bought a number of bags of rubber mulch for my front garden as well as my side garden. After putting the mulch down a neighbour of mine informed me that rubber mulch is toxic once the sun heats it up in the summer and releases toxins in the air as well as the toxins in in the rubber mulch is not good for plants. Can someone please elaborate on wether this is true or not.

Thanks

My plants are doing great. This mulch stays aerated and does not form a crust. Its made from used tires so if your car tires are releasing toxins then I guess it is possible this product might also. I am going to use this product on the rest of my plant gardens. I would not use it on vegetable gardens.

Answer: 
I have used this very successfully around established trees and shrubs. As a lifetime gardener, I would not recommend it for vegetable or rose gardens. Rose gardens need organic mulch, such as pine needles which benefit the plant's growth, along with occasional banana peels. Vegetable gardens should not be mulched, as many kinds of insects love to nest in it.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 380 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Filler for Sandbag For those looking to make a weighted "sandbag" for working out, this filler works perfectly. Each bag weighs right at 20lbs and three to four bags will fill a seabag (duffle for all you non-maritime types) for a 60-80lb sack. Five sacks (100lbs) would probably be pushing a seabag's capacity, so you might need to substitute a denser material for last 20lbs in a 100lb bag. Otherwise, the material has enough volume to comfortably fill out the bag while providing an ideal workout weight. Very happy with the results! August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cedar Red Rubber Mulch Love the durability, softness and color of the Rubber Mulch. Soft enough to walk on but sturdy enough to keep in place. I decided to go with the rubber due to placing it around my pond. I am absolutely happy with my decision and purchase. So happy I added it along the whole side of my patio :) August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mulch. I laid this rubber mulch over red bark. It spreads easily an now no slivers when I weed! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vigoro Rubber Much The product is more durable than the wood mulch which I used previously. I used 1.5" thickness and it covers the areas well. If the color stays for 12 years as advertised than the higher cost is worth it. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great color! I really like the color and the fact that it is made from a recyclable which will not have to be replaced for a longer period of time. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vigor Rubber Mulch The RED coloring is more BROWN but the product performs as expected. SEVERAL heavy rains have occurred and the mulch has remained in place and it looks really good as it is placed. August 9, 2016
