Rubber Designs offers a low maintenance and cost-effective alternative for all your landscaping needs with our Loose Fill Rubber Mulch. Properly installed rubber mulch requires little maintenance and can last for 10 or more years, as compared to wood mulch, which is generally replaced each year. Loose fill rubber mulch allows water and fertilizer applications to pass through to the soil and will not attract insects, helping to protect your flowers, plants, and home from pests. Rubber Designs Loose Fill Rubber Mulch is long-lasting and durable, will not deteriorate and does not float away or splinter. Great for residential or commercial use, rubber mulch is an attractive addition to landscaping.
Rubber Mulch is made from recycled tire buffing and is especially popular as a ground cover for playgrounds due to its soft and springy bounce. Rubber Designs raw material originates as 100% recycled commercial waste stream rubber called buffing. Our recycled rubber buffing is taken from the outer layer of large commercial tires. By using only the outer layer, we keep all undesirable elements such as fragments of steel out of our product. This ensures product safety and produces a more uniform look and feel. As the tire is spun at a high speed, the outer layer is shredded off and collected, creating the soft and safe rubber buffing we use in our recycled rubber product offerings. With our unique, organic powder color coating combined with our formulated polymer, our colors won’t rub off or stain.
A buffing sieve analysis is performed prior to the materials being colored and bagged. We selectively classify our recycled buffing material, and carefully sort particle sizes ranging from 3/8” to 2”. It is necessary to have the right combination and proportionate particle sizes so the finished product weaves and knits together by design.
