Rubber Mulch for Gardens
There’s nothing nicer than the look of a tidy, mulched garden. By choosing rubber mulch for your garden, you will also be able to help prevent evaporation and keep pesky weeds at bay. If you love to have a well groomed garden year round. rubber mulch could be the solution for your home or business.
The pros and cons for rubber mulch vs. wood mulch for playgrounds are the same as those for gardens – rubber mulch is long lasting, looks good, doesn’t attract termites and is non-toxic.
So, what are the rubber mulch pros and cons? Here are just a few:
- It’s long lasting and doesn’t fade
Rubber mulch lasts much longer than traditional wood chip mulch. Rubber mulch lasts from 10-20 years, while you’ll only get about 6 months out of wood chip garden mulch.
- It locks in moisture
This will keep the soil (and your plants) happy, while also helping to keep your water bills down.
- It’s non-toxic
Okay, so rubber mulch won’t break down to add nutrients to the soil like garden mulch will, but its non-toxic covering and environmentally friendly recycled production makes up for this.
- It doesn’t attract termites
Termites love wood, so why give them a free meal with traditional wood chip mulch?
- It’s portable
So if you move house, you can just rake up your rubber mulch and take it with you. Too easy!
