Answer: 
This rubber mulch is more like an irregular nugget shape. There are various sizes and shapes of pieces. The edges of each "nugget" are slightly ragged. Actually it is more like mildly shredded pieces. It is NOT like shredded bark/wood mulch. I included a couple of photos. Hope this helps!

Answer: 
I think that would be a good idea, regardless of the mulch you use. I used this mulch around a swing set, so I did not lay a weed barrier first. I do get weeds growing up through it that I have to spray. You probably will avoid that if you use a weed barrier.

Answer: 
You can lay landscaping fabric if you want, but it is not required. If you put the mulch thick enough, nothing will grow from below. You might, however, want to sprinkle some Preen before you mulch to prevent new weeds from germinating from any seeds that get in them.

Answer: 
That would be a personal preference on your part. If you put the mulch down thick enough it will keep the weeds from growing. I have found the fabric usually works it way to the top and looks ugly once it is exposed.

Answer: 
I installed five bags, 20 feet from my window yesterday. Today it is 82 degrees and I smelled rubber from the window when there was a breeze blowing toward the house. The odor was not strong, but was noticeable. I had intended to install quite a bit more, but am concerned about how much worse the odor might get with a larger quantity or when the weather exceeds 90 or 100 degrees in Southern California.

When you first open bag it does. But it is not strong and in a few days it lessens. Over a year ago, I put this around all my bushes and plants covering the entire front of my house and have no problem with any rubber smell. I have a huge hibiscus bush and Crepe Myrtle "bed' that I put this on this year and it looks great, no strong smell and extremely functional.

No, you don't need to put new rubber mulch down each year. It is made from recycled rubber tires and its guaranteed for 20 or so years. It stays put, does not wash out with rain and lasts great through snow, color doesn't fade. Mine has been down for two years. Looks good as new.

You should not have to add new mulch each year. This stuff is very durable and should last for years. It is also very resistant to the wind. The snow does not seem to affect it at all. I have had mine down for two years now and it still looks new, I don't think it has faded at all. I love this stuff!

I am on the second year with this rubber mulch and didn't have to replace any. Actually, I created another large bush/flower bed a few weeks ago and used this mulch I like it so well! I am in Georgia, only experienced light snow this past winter, so I can't comment on how it lasts in a heavy snow area. But mine has done great! No color fade with the hot Georgia sun and heavy rainfall this past year.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 342 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product I was planning on using shredded rubber mulch around my house, because I hate how wood mulch fades so quickly and develops white fungus, but not until next Spring. However, I needed something to put around a patio area that was in place of our pool. I went with the nuggets to save some money, as the shredded is $4 more per bag. However, after spreading this, I will use this around the front as well. Spreads so easily, covers alot, and looks great. I love how light the bags are to carry to where you need them, as opposed to shovel and wheelbarrow. Really tempted me to replace the mulch in the front as well now, instead of waiting til Spring, but I'll see what it looks like after a winter. October 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My whole back yard Basically 2/3 of my back yard is rubber mulch. Doesn't float, last, and stops weed growth. 20 times better than cypress mulch. By the way with a standard leaf blower leaves just blow off leaves, not the mulch. October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Once in a lifetime project Our son and daughter-in-law spent a week landscaping the area between our office and house. We decided to go with rubber mulch because of the great reviews it had. So thankful we did! Love the mocha chocolate color that is guaranteed for 12 yrs. We love the looks of it and trust we won't have to keep adding to it like you do with wood mulch. Liked the idea of fewer insects also. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really, Really, Really Nice Product The product was just what I needed to cover various areas around my house. The color and consistency of the mulch is perfect and it is very easy to spread. I have attached one of the many photos taken at the completion of the project. August 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stuff! I raked out the bigger pieces of old hardwood mulch already in my beds and then spread this stuff. If the mulch is close in color to the old stuff you're replacing, you can go pretty light with the coverage. Each bag only covers .8cu ft., but I don't think I have even a 2" depth on average. The pieces are smaller than regular mulch and so far at least 2 of my neighbors are going to use it as well after seeing mine. The big bonus is looking at how nice this is and thinking about how many tires are NOT in a landfill now! And don't worry, almost zero odor and I have a sensitive sniffer. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality rubber mulch nuggets Exactly what I was looking for. Rich brown, color will obviously last a long time. Rubber mulch, while more money initially, pays for itself over time. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny We just finished landscaping our yard and decided instead of buying wood mulch we'd spend the extra money up front on rubber mulch. We looked at several brands and the Vigaro was just as good quality and color as the others but much less expensive. We ordered 60 bags online and they had them set apart on a pallet for us when we went to pick up our order. They just fork-lifted the whole pallet into the bed of our pickup. This mulch is very good quality. We didn't find any metal at all. There are a few "fuzzy" pieces but they just blend in. It's nice and heavy and weathered the recent rain without moving an inch. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the Rubber Mulch from Home Depot I have used the Mocha Brown Rubber Mulch before and love it. Soft to the bare feet and stays in place. Performs as expected. In the photo, I used the Mocha Brown Rubber Mulch in front of a Tiny House that was built from an old oak 8'x8' chicken house. The Mocha Brown Rubber Mulch is perfect around the fire pit!
