        A:  It's certainly washable. And I've had mine for 3 years I think, and there's no change to the color.

          A:  Cleaning the leaves off is a problem. I found I had to pick up the mulch by hand and return it to where it belonged. However, the color is stable and apart from disrupting while racking leaves you don't have to replace it.

              A:  Not as much as real mulch. I use a blower at less than full speed and don't have a mess

                A:  Yes when using a leaf blower you can not be near the beds with rubber mulch. I had my yard cleaned from winter and the company did not stop and when I came home I found my 10 bags of rubber mulch all over my yard so not a good idea. No weeds grow so needs very little to nothing for maintenance. Love the way it looks never looses its color.

                  A:  A leaf blower can be used at a low setting to skim the top of the mulch when trying to remove debris.

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  For more than 20 years our focus has always been on product safety and product quality. Multiple times each year our products made from 100% recycled rubber undergo stringent third-party testing against government standards and are proven to have no environmental issues whatsoever. As we make our mulch from end-of-life tires, that in the past would have been relegated to landfills across North America, our mission of sustainability and being better stewards of the land is at the core of what we do.

                        A:  I am not a doctor or in the field of medicine so I can only offer up my experiences. I have applied this product around my house and in front of my deck, We sit out on our deck a lot during the spring and summer months. I does have a little bit of an oder upon initial application. I have found wetting it down accelerates the process. I definitely do not find a problem the next spring. I have applied it in the back yard. I surrounded my trees with regular mulch and applied the perimeter with rubberized mulch. You need in all cases to drop a weed guard before applying rubberized mulch. Seams to work for me. I have used about 75 bags so far to cover my desired area. About  2.inches deep. Sometimes a little more. A lot less than 3 inches needed for regular mulch. Hope this helps answer your initial question and a little more.
