Rubber mulch can give you all the coverage you need at an affordable price and allow for you to maintain your flooring over time to keep it nice and even.

How much use is your playground going to get?

If there are going to be kids playing on it almost everyday, you need flooring that is durable and built to last for a long time. Rubber mulch will stand up to constant wear and tear and perform well over the long haul.

How quickly do you need to get your hands on flooring?

They put up a playground and then suddenly remember they need to figure out what to do about the flooring. If you need to get your hands on flooring quickly, rubber mulch is something you can have sent to your playground site immediately. You can also install it a lot easier than other flooring types.
