The only complaint I have is the additional cost compaired to the traditional bark. But I am assuming added costs are needed to manufacture this product. If you look closely, you can tell that it is repurposed tires. It is a nice way to keep them out of the landfills. I dont have anyone that will be inspecting my flower beds that closely to tell I have rubber in my beds. I have put the traditional bark down in many garden/flower beds over the years. They degrade and fade within one year. They look & smell great only for a few weeks before the color is sucked from them from our watering and heat here in Arizona. The rubber smell was gone with in a few days. I used 20 bags on four beds around the back patio and 20 bags in the long bed along the west side of the house. Last monsoon my traditional light bark floated off in the rains. This rubber bark is heavier. I laid out some weed prevention paper under the bark (with the investment why not get a roll and save some work later on down the line).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SheDvl LOOKS GREAT
This looks spectacular in our yard - Used a lot of bags, 95 for front yard. PLEASE NOTE: Double check price on the large bulk bag and notice it is a great deal more money than buying the same cubic feet in individual bags??? Besides it was easier for me to deal with my self in the individual bags. When I tried to order 100 bags for my back yard - for the product it would be $697.00 but they wanted to charge me $1,000.00 for shipping - $10.00 per bag to ship to the store, that's more than the product it self unless I wanted to drive to one location 60 miles away and another location 250 miles away - so just be careful as to where you are and where the bags in stock are. In short I changed the color in my back yard to the Cedar Red instead of the Mocha Brown no shipping charges then and it still looks great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mickifan77 Would definitely do this again
I purchased this for our front yard of our new home. For starters, it's quick and easy to put down and the bags weigh much less than traditional mulch so I could carry a bag with one hand. I put down weed barrier first and just dumped the bags out spreading it with either my foot or bare hands.
My neighbors were so impressed that they said they're going to get it as well. We had a few days of heavy rain and unlike bark, this all stayed in place. I'm looking forward to a summer free of pulling weeds and having my yard look great and will be adding this to the backyard when we start on that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Erik Works Great for Years
I have bought a great deal of this for all the flower beds in my front yard at least three years ago and just placed a somewhat thin layer over existing organic mulch and it has not faded a bit. I typically plant annuals each year and so when I do I will typically grab a few extra bags of this just to fill in the areas where the organic mulch has decomposed. This is a great savings on time and money when compared to buying organic mulch and spending hours each year spreading. Overall this is a one and done for years product! This is one that when I mentioned to some landscaper friends they did not like it because it would make it so that they lose business because it lasts so long!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarneyB Looks and Works Great! Playset Approved
Purchased the Vigoro Rubber Mulch to enhance the safety and look of our children's playset in the backyard. Combined two colors of mulch and used EcoBorder Landscape Edging to create a play area that not only works great, but looks amazing too. I would highly recommend rubber mulch not only for the play surface, but for the low-maintenance as you don't have to replace it every year like traditional mulch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteakSauce Really Nice Addition
Wound up buying 22 bags for a 10x10 foot section of landing at the base of our new deck in the inner city. Of all the colors this seemed a more natural choice than black or red. I would usually go for organic mulch BUT:
Feral cats all over the neighborhood, who like pooping in mulch. The little black house ants also can nest in the organic material. Organic mulch begins bleaching in sun and you then have to add more or replace what you've got every year or two. Also, these bags are much lighter in weight, so easier to transport, apply and manage. The color lasts at least 10 years (says the product) vs one for tree mulch. The rubber bits are simply recycled tires which are then painted. You can smell some rubber scent but it isn't overwhelming, and I assume it will dissipate as it rains and breathes. My wife who embraces natural products was pleasantly surprised when she saw the new landing after returning from a vacation and suggested we do even more around the house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fortune Looks Great...good price
The product looks real.... the only set back is that it comes clumped together and you have to break it up. Was tough to do that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dustysmom Greatest landscape material
I love this product. I first used it last year and was very impressed with how it weathered over the winter, looked like new. Bought more to landscape around more plantings. It is pet friendly, my Yorkie doesn't get any slivers in his paws.
