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.

Toxic/Not safe for Plants

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
Asked by: Trinity
We have had it for almost 4 years now and every year my flowers grow back. There are some articles online that do say it is toxic, especially in the summer as it releases chemicals when in the direct sun. We have not had a problem though, and it still looks great years later.

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?

0.8 cu. ft. Cedar Red Rubber Mulch is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 907.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good color, Excellent to walk on, Poor value. I used the materials as a mulch. I take exception with the manufacturer's claim that the mulch is easy to maintain. Small critters kept kicking the mulch onto the sidewalk and drive causing a constant clean up. I found it difficult to remove dead leaves and pine needles. A blower blows the mulch away as well as the leaves and needles. The use of an wet or dry vacuum picks up the mulch as well. The initial cost to install the mulch in an area about a thousand square feet is prohibitive. The material would be an excellent surface for garden paths, it is quite comfortable to walk on as the material has a sponginess, however the problems above would still occur. The rubber mulch maintains it's color well and it is easy to remove dust from the surface with a quick spray from a garden hose. I prefer organic mulches as they are less expensive to initially install and easier to refurbish. Organic mulches made from coconut fiber work quite well, maintain color, and do not promote termites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps color and best buy out there Rubber mulch is VERY expensive BUT I could not find any cheaper (no matter the quantity) than the bags of VIGERO that is sold at THE HOME DEPOT and while tree byproduct mulch is SSSOOO much cheaper you get what you pay for. Not only is Rubber mulch better for the environment as it finds a practical use for used tires other then a land fill, it also does not need to be replaced at all (compared to wood mulch). I have had red rubber mulch for over 5 yrs in my yard now and the new mulch I put down is the same color and quality as that of what I just bought. The reason I bought more (BE AWARE) the stuff is addicting, once you have it around your trees you'll want it in your flower beds, once you have it there, you may just want to put it around your children's playground... In other words it looks a lot nicer than almost anything else out there. If you can't tell I'm a fan. Only serious precaution is make sure you apply it to areas with a barrier, otherwise (like regular mulch) it will start to spread out further than desired and lose the overall effect through time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product. We had been using traditional much. Last spring we put about 10 bags down by Aug we added another bag. It lost color by Nov. we live in south Fl so snow isnt an issue. We tried this this weekend and its great Slight rubber smell for a few hours but not bad. We bought 10 bags but ran and added 11 more. We raked a removed the old mulch first and laid this about 2 inches thick. My suggestion buy almost double traditional much amount of bags

Great look It's expensive compared to cypress, but if the 12 year color guarantee holds up it'll be worth it. Don't bother looking into ordering this in one of the bulk forms. Inexplicably, at Home Depot, it's much cheaper by the bag.
