600 Square Foot Playground with 6-Inch Depth (ASTM F1292-99)

Play Safe Surfacing Rubber Playground Mulch cost  $42.00  more, over a five year period, when compared to hardwood mulch.  This does not take into account the costs for upkeep and maintenance of replacing the wood chips two times per year, each year for the 5-year period. With our mulch, your children will go home clean and sanitary because it does not promote bacteria or bug infestation. It can also be played on within a short time of rain because it dries much faster. Is your time , labor and piece of mind (liability) worth a savings of only $42.00 over 5-years?  *Rubberific Rubber Mulch pricing and coverage based on published information supplied on their web site on 8/24/2001. *Play Safe Surfacing 5/8” Mulch pricing is based on volume buying of 5 pallets or more with a savings of $20.00 per pallet.

Using Play Safe Surfacing mulch in an island that’s about 100 sq. ft., at a depth of about 1 1/2 to 2-inches will save you money over a 5-year period, but it also reduces your time and aggravation by eliminating the need to replace wood mulches or pine straw twice a year, every year. Unlike wood mulch products, our rubber mulch does not attract insects or bugs, is 100% wire free and will not breakdown or float away like wood mulch.  What would you rather be doing this weekend? *Rubberific Rubber Mulch pricing and coverage based on published information supplied on their web site on 8/24/2001. *Play Safe Surfacing 1” mulch price is based on 1-pallet purchase.
