Loose fill playground surfaces are one of the most durable, safe and cost-effective surfacing options. We offer a variety of mulch products to meet your needs including Engineered Wood Fiber Mulch and Rubber mulch.

This rubber safety surfacing comes in loose flakes or “nuggets” and provides much of the safety of natural mulch with fewer drawbacks. Place this mulch where children may be liable to fall, like around a slide or set of monkey bars. This rubber play surface can help to ensure that any falls do not result in serious injuries.

Benefits of Mulch Products
Mulch provides countless benefits when properly used as a playground safety surface. Perhaps the largest single benefit to using wood mulch for your playground safety surfacing is its ease of installation. Unlike other popular playground surfacing products, such as artificial turf and poured in place rubber, mulch products require no special tools, knowledge or skill set for installation. This is a tremendous advantage.
Second to the ease and pace of installation, mulch products are cost effective and still provide the necessary levels of fall protection to make sure your playground is safe for all kids to use. Whether you decide on E.W.F or Rubber Mulch, you can rest assured that if the proper depths are maintained that your playground will be safe for children to use.
